We are medically managed by pathologists and a select and highly qualified team of scientific staff and senior management.

Our practice is managed by doctors for doctors. Our CEO, Dr Jim Newcombe, is a pathologist. All department directors are pathologists, and pathologists are represented at all levels of management.

Our executive and senior management staff and pathologists encourage clinicians to contact them for information, consultation, support or advice at any time. Our liaison and regional managers are available to assist clinicians and their staff with the practicalities of using our services.

Our history

DHM was formed in 1996 from the amalgamation of two like-minded pathology practices; Douglass Laboratories and Hanly Moir Pathology. The following years saw other practices merge with DHM to form the entity we know today. Each known for its dedication to quality medical practice, scientific excellence and service to referring clinicians, these practices included Barratt & Smith Pathology, Tan Pathology, Posney Richmond Pathology, Australian Diagnostic Laboratories and Accord Pathology.

DHM is, therefore, a composite of several laboratories, the combined resources of which ensure the ongoing provision of high-quality pathology services to the community.
