Lab Services

Full lab services are available each Thursday morning from 7:00am to 10:55am. Appointments necessary. Phone the clinic or come in to book an appointment up to 4 weeks in advance. Requisitions for service are required, so you need to see your primary physician or nurse practitioner to acquire these ahead of time. As well, you need to bring your Care Card to present at the time of seeing the Lab Tech.

Important Notice

Due to Island Health staffing shortages, we are only being sent one lab technician each week. This means that we are booking about 2-3 weeks out for lab/bloodwork here at the clinic. If you know that you have lab work coming up, please try to book as far in advance as you can.️

Important Directives

Thank You for helping us to run smooth, efficient Lab Days on Galiano

No drop offs after 9:45am.  This includes urine samples, COVID Gargles, FIT or stool specimens.

The Cut-Off Day for booking a Thursday Lab appointment is now the Monday of that week.

Patients need to book an appointment for picking up a specimen container; especially for FIT Test or stool sample kits, etc. 

These containers require preprocessing.

Patients need to remember to write the date and time that they gave the urine or stool sample on the label, as well as the requisition.
