Because laboratory results are reported electronically, it is essential that patients be properly identified by their legal name, not a nickname or preferred name.
Please donít call us to check what name you have used with us previously. We will check this next time you come to the lab.
It would be a good idea however to bring government issued id (passport, driverís license, BC Services Card) with you just in case we need to create a new file for you with your proper legal name. A BC Care Card without a photo will not be adequate for this purpose.
If we do have to create a new record for you, and if you are registered with myehealth to be able to get your own laboratory results, we will give you the information you need to update your registration with myehealth when you are at the lab.
