Since the publication last year of Lord Carter’s review of NHS pathology services, pilot sites across the country have sprung into action to collect the data required to build workable models of service change in pathology. This important new conference from Health Service Journal is your opportunity to hear current progress in the development of models of pathology modernisation, both from the Carter Review team and from the pilot sites at the front line of pathology.

Understanding the business of pathology

All NHS services increasingly need to be run as businesses. Especially pathology services where the future may well be as stand-alone business units. This event will help you understand the business mechanics of pathology services and enhance your business skills. You’ll hear the very latest thinking from the activity-based costing exercise, which you’ll be able to use to develop a better understanding of your own costs in preparation for implementing modernisation. The other crucial side of the business equation is income. Attend this event to hear about progress in the development of a national PbR tariff for pathology services, and again how you can prepare for this.
