This is the last post on this blog. It was set up in the aftermath of the Bristol Histopathology Inquiry.
Bristol’s histopathology services are part of the cellular pathology service which is now managed by North Bristol NHS Trust. Thus the key recommendation from the Histopathology Inquiry – one cellular pathology service for Bristol – has been achieved.
We are not in a position to comment on the quality and safety of the merged service because no outcomes data for it is publicly available.
Patients requiring cellular pathology services may wish to ask their doctors for outcomes data to enable them to provide informed consent for cellular pathology investigations.
