To whom and on what terms

In order to get tested in a public health care laboratory, you need a referral from either a doctor or a nurse. The referral contains important information on what you’re to be tested for.

Basic information and legislation

Public health care laboratories test and analyse blood, urine and cell samples among other things. A referral from a doctor or a nurse is needed to use public health care laboratory services. The referral specifies what the sample should be tested for. Before giving a sample, you should read the instructions provided by your doctor or the laboratory. For example, there may be restrictions on eating and drinking before you give a sample.

Some private laboratory services may be used without a referral if you are yourself able to specify what laboratory tests you need. Private laboratories charge the fees indicated on their price lists for their services.
