National Pathology Week is here

National Pathology Week

We’re taking this opportunity to celebrate our amazing pathology team all week and highlight the vital contribution they make to our health.

National Pathology Week is an annual celebration of pathology, and helps raise awareness of how pathologists and scientists diagnose disease.

Rotherham’s pathology department, sometimes called laboratory medicine, provides laboratory and testing services and specialises in detecting disease through a variety of investigative techniques. Their work is crucial in finding accurate and early diagnosis in patients and improving the prospects for treatment.

In recent years, the Pathology departments at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust and Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have been working together, progressing to a fully merged pathology service to significantly improve services to GP and hospital-based users.
