Sharing your Laboratory Information

You may be interested in learning of another information sharing system which is now available in the Wellington, Wairarapa and Hutt Valley regions.

There has been a recent change in laboratory provider in the Wellington, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa regions, with Wellington SCL now managing all laboratory services across the districts.

As part of this change the Capital & Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa DHB's required the new provider to establish a Clinical Data Repository (CDR) where all laboratory results are automatically placed. This means that your test results from Wellington SCL may be available to healthcare providers from the Hutt Valley District Health Board, Capital & Coast District Health Board and some community providers (such as GPs, private specialists and midwives)

If you do not wish for other health providers to have access to your Laboratory Record, you can opt-out by phoning 04 381 5975.
