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.

been working together, progressing to a fully merged pathology service to
significantly improve services to GP and hospital-based users.
