'A Practical Guide to ISO 15189 in Laboratory Medicine' AVAILABLE NOW

10/10/2013 13:29:42

Front Cover ISO15189

The new Practical Guide to ISO 15189 is available to purchase from the ACB Online store.
Written by Dr David Burnett OBE, former Consultant Clinical Biochemist at the St Albans & Hemel Hempstead NHS Trust, this book is primarily intended as a practical guide for laboratory professionals wishing to implement the International Standard, ISO 15189:2012 Medical laboratories – Requirements for quality and competence in their laboratories, but will also be useful to peer review assessors or full time assessors working for accreditation bodies. It may seem presumptuous to have created for the purpose of this book an outline structure of an ‘Ideal Standard’ for use in the accreditation of medical laboratories, but it is essential to the structure and interactivity of the contents of this book. Where appropriate, material is presented from the Pathology Laboratory at St Elsewhere’s Regional Hospital Trust. In this fictional laboratory the staff continue to work in harmony, enabling the documentation to have a clarity of overall structure beyond belief, but it is not necessarily the perfect solution to everybody’s real life problems.

The book can be purchased from the ACB Online Store.

The booked is priced at £35 (+P&P.) ACB Members receive a 10% discount (or 33% if you have been a member for less than 1 year.) Please note that you have to log into the online store in order to access the discounted price.

Discounts are available for those purchasing 10+ copies. For information please contact the ACB Office.
