Request for examples of innovation and best practice across the chemical pathology and histopathology workforces

Health Education England (HEE) is working with The Royal College of Pathologists, Institute of Biomedical Science and the Association for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine, to address issues relating to the development of the pathology workforce. As part of this work, we are seeking to identify examples of workforce innovation and best practice that may be happening locally. The initial focus of this work is on the chemical pathology and histopathology workforces, considering the role of the healthcare scientist as well as the medical workforce.

We would like to invite members of the Association for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine to share their examples of innovative ways of working. Suggestions include but are not restricted to examples of:

  • skill mix and role expansion
  • innovative local solutions to address workforce gaps
  • how training capacity has been increased to deliver training within service
  • workforce adaptation and development to address IT and technological changes

In your response could you please provide a summary of your local arrangements and outline what you perceived to have worked well and what hasn’t worked well?

To respond to this request please complete the form below and email it to diagnosticsprogramme@hee.nhs.uk
