What we do
We provide a comprehensive, CPA-accredited* pathology service to help your doctors and nurses find out what is wrong with you and to monitor how your treatment is working. We test blood and other samples from GP and hospital patients in the main laboratories of Blood Transfusion, Chemical Pathology, Haematology, Histopathology and Microbiology. Requests for specialised tests are sent away to other accredited laboratories in the UK.

Who you will Meet
Pathology is staffed by phlebotomists, medical laboratory assistants, biomedical scientists, clinical scientists and consultant pathologists. If you are a GP's patient, it is unlikely you will have any direct contact with our staff unless you are have blood taken at the hospital by our phlebotomists. However, if you are a hospital patient, you may meet our Chemical Pathology, Haematology or Microbiology consultants in addition to our phlebotomists.
Research and Development
We do not carry out any fundamental research but we do provide a service for pathology testing of patients involved in clinical trials.
If you are a patient, you may find LabTests Online useful to find more detailed information about the tests being done on your specimens and how the results will help your doctors find out what's wrong with you and how your condition may be monitored.
Biomedical and Clinical Scientists are registered by the Health Professions Council
Pathologists are registered by the General Medical Council and are members of The Royal College of Pathologists
UK pathology laboratories are accredited by CPA Ltd
Please see individual departments’ web pages for detailed information and instructions on how to collect your own specimens.
