More than 70% of patient healthcare decisions depend on the results of tests carried out in a pathology laboratory. A crucial component in the delivery of high quality patient care, pathology demands accurate and efficient turnarounds and affordable pricing.
Our vision is to lead pathology transformation through our network of experts to achieve a better service for clinicians, and better outcomes for patients 24/7.
Our purpose is to bring scientific innovation to the whole of the NHS through a transformed pathology service – enabling rapid diagnosis and intervention, making personalised medicine available for all and accelerating improvement across the service.
We aim to anticipate change and stay at the forefront of every aspect of pathology service delivery. We are committed to exploring technologies, developing new tests, and partnering with other Trusts to improve services.
We work hard to foster a dynamic, forward-looking culture. We support this through continued investment in diagnostic development, always looking for new opportunities to transform our services.
We aim to attract and foster the brightest talent, whether that be through adding to our roster of world-leading scientists, clinicians and business leaders, or by furthering the knowledge of existing staff through training.
We are building a network of peer-to-peer excellence in pathology. With the goal of improving outcomes for patients, we continue to expand our network and add to our expertise.
Our service philosophy
We aim to deliver a high quality service in all aspects of what we do, providing added value through supporting clinical interpretation and efficiency through a well-managed delivery process.
