About our service

There are many areas within pathology, these are:

Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology, Blood Transfusion, Cellular Pathology and Microbiology.

The departments are staffed by a combination of highly trained Biomedical Scientists/Associate Practitioners and Medical Laboratory Assistants.  Each area provides acute and non-acute services.

  • Clinical Biochemistry - measures a wide range of analytes including renal/liver/cardiac/tumour and bone function tests.  These measurements help in detecting and diagnosing disease and in monitoring treatment.
  • Haematology and Blood Transfusion - encompasses clinical management of blood disorders, laboratory measurement of cellular components of blood, provision and proper use of transfusion products, and laboratory identification and clinical management of disturbances in haemostasis.
  • Cellular Pathology - is the section of Pathology concerned with the study of cells (Cytology) and the study of tissues (Histopathology).
  • Microbiology- helps diagnosis and treatment of infection and infectious disease.

The pathology department is where laboratory tests are completed. These play a critical unseen role that help with medical decisions, such as diagnosis and monitoring conditions/diseases.

All laboratories are UKAS accredited to ISO 15189.
