National Pathology Week

Issue date: 
07 November 2016

This year, the Royal College of Pathologists’ National Pathology Week is taking place between 7-13 November, and will be an opportunity to recognise and celebrate pathology and the important contributions pathologists and laboratory professionals make to healthcare.


This year’s theme is ‘Pathology: prevention, diagnosis, treatment’  

During the week, pathologists, laboratory scientists, specialist organisations and hospitals in England, Scotland and Wales will host a variety of events, aimed at people of all ages, to improve public awareness and understanding of ‘the science behind the cure’. They will provide a fantastic opportunity for members of the public to understand how pathology works and the impact it has on the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

Caroline Browne, Head of Regulation at the HTA said: “RCPath’s annual event continues to provide an exciting and accessible range of events.  We would encourage anyone who wants to know more about modern medicine and the science of diagnosis to attend.”
