ACB News - December 2021

In this Christmas issue our President, Bernie Croal, talks about the ACB’s ‘Build back with Labs’ initiative and ‘Demand Optimisation’. Jane Pritchard, our CEO, updates on what is happening at the ACB headquarters in Tooley Street. Elaine Cloutman-Green gives us an interesting insight into the role of IPC in a Children’s Hospital at Christmas! We also have a very topical Winter Quiz. There are updates on the future of Lab Tests Online UK. Alison Whitelegg introduces the ACB mentoring programme and we have information on a new short course on whole genome sequencing from the ACB Microbiology Professional Committee.

We have articles on standardisation of tube colours and the recent ACB National Audit meeting, as well as a Microbiology report from the Environment Network meeting on ‘Designing and building for infection prevention’. Finally, there is a UKMedLab22 ‘save the date’ announcement. We hope you enjoy this issue.

Wishing all our members a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
