ACB News - October 2021

In this issue our new ACB President Bernie Croal talks about tube shortages and Pathology GIRFT and Jane Pritchard, our CEO, updates us on the Pathology Powerlist 2021 and plans for Tooley Street.  We have a little bit of ACB history as Ruth Lapworth reports on Dr Fred Mitchell at 100, one of our longest serving and oldest surviving founder members and Anne Green writes about Evelyn Hickmans, who established the first Paediatric Biochemistry Department in the country. There are obituaries for Cyril Weinkove and Frank Finlay. We also have articles on T levels, AKI reporting, further updates on EDI Benchmarking and we get to meet our front cover star UKMedLab21 Quiz winner Alison Bransfield. Also featured are all the usual articles such as Industry Insights, Deacon’s Challenge, The Diggle Microbiology Challenge, Trainees News, Microbiology News, Immunology News, future events and more. We would also like to remind you that the closing date for applications for the UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence awards is approaching. We hope you enjoy!

With kind regards and best wishes

The ACB News team
