NSW Health Pathology and Service NSW are working together to deliver COVID-19 test results to you faster.
If you have had a test at a NSW public hospital COVID-19 clinic, you can choose to receive your result via:
- SMS and email, if you have a MyServiceNSW Account, and
- a push notification, if you also have the Service NSW mobile app and your push notification is on.
When you get tested, you'll receive a patient flyer with steps to register.
If you test positive for COVID-19, you'll:
- be contacted directly by a public healthcare professional as a priority, and
- receive an SMS or email directing you to the NSW Health Pathology Portal.
All other pathology tests will be notified separately.
To register you must:
- be a New South Wales resident
