Find a collection centre
Whether you need a blood test or another type of pathology test, Mater Pathology has more than 25 collection centres within Brisbane and its surrounding communities to ensure you have access to our quality service. Collection centre opening times vary so please check for times that suit you.
If these times do not suit you, we also offer a 24/7 collection service at our South Brisbane facility. Please present to Mater Hospital Brisbane Adult Emergency or Mater Private Emergency Care Centre after 5 pm and a phlebotomist will be contacted and perform the required collection.
Find your nearest collection centre.
Home collection service
Did you know that we also provide an efficient and bulk billed* home collection service for all patients throughout Brisbane, Ipswich and northern Gold Coast? If you are a cancer patient at Mater, or have attended one of our Mater hospitals (pre-op or post-op), we can come to you. If you are elderly and without transport, or are a parent with young children and have difficulty getting to one of our collection centres, we can come to you. Our service exists to support both Mater and St Vincent’s patients in our community to ensure you can access care when you need it.
Utilising a team of fully qualified collectors—specialising in the collection of specimens for general adult, maternity, paediatric and neonatal tests—our home service allows you to access our expertise from the comfort of your own home.
