Message for members:

Urgent – COVID-19 Message from David Wells, Head of Pathology Consolidation NHS England and NHS Improvement Today (4th March 2020)
NHSE/I have formally asked Pathology services across England to increase their testing capacity for COVID-19 as part of the ongoing preparedness planning. Working with their Pathology Network partners all NHS England Trusts should be working to scale up testing capacity as rapidly as possible. NHS Pathology Networks are asked to appoint a lead to head up this work and to ensure they are linked into the communication and planning meetings planned to commence on Monday 9th March.
For more information please look out for information distributed via the NHS Trust Executives and senior pathology managers alternatively email

NHS E and I would like to ask RCPath, ACB and IBMS to support their members in delivering this initiative.
