Pathology is the engine room of healthcare and throughout the pandemic, Australian pathology teams have done an amazing job; firstly by developing a test for a totally new virus in record time, and then dealing with the unprecedented demand for those tests, and getting results out quickly day after day.

During this time, while focused on COVID-19, many Australians have missed out on the other pathology tests that are vital for diagnosing and managing diseases, and this could have a big impact on the future health of the nation.

The Don’t Wait Mate campaign is a reminder to anyone who has missed out on a healthcare appointment or test, not to delay any longer.
