Information for Medical Professionals


Gold Coast Pathology is a privately owned pathology practice with a mission to provide a high quality histopathology and cytopathology service to the medical community of the Gold Coast and Northern New South Wales.

Our aim is to provide exceptionally high quality service in a timely manner to all our customers with particular focus on patient care.

With the laboratory based in Burleigh Heads, referrers can rest assured that their patient’s specimens are being processed locally and not having to endure the potential risks associated with transporting their patient’s specimens interstate.

Dr Robson and the team at Gold Coast Pathology provide a professional histopathology and cytopathology service to all clinicians and provide a fast, accurate, reliable service.

Gold Coast Pathology works towards having a fast turnaround time for result generation of 24 hours for the majority of reports with the exception of frozen sections or larger specimens. There may be times when specimens require further testing which could possibly delay the results.

Our network of couriers ensures that specimens are collected in a timely manner and returned to the laboratory for processing ensuring the fastest turnaround time possible.

Gold Coast Pathology strives to provide a quality and professional service meeting the demands of all their customers by:

• Ease of report comprehension
• Pathologist and Laboratory contact access
• Courier service
• Stock Ordering


Gold Coast Pathology participates in The Skin Cancer College of Australia and New Zealand (SCCANZ) Surgical Audit Research Project on behalf of our referrers.

The Skin Cancer Audit and Research Database (SCARD), is designed as a surgical log for doctors who specifically treat skin malignancies. It has been designed to facilitate tracking of skin cancer treatment and to provide referring doctors with relevant statistical data that can improve the overall management of skin lesions.

Please do not hesitate to contact Sharon Pickles 0432 370 655 if you would like to participate in the audit.
