KingsPath is the Clinical Diagnostic Pathology Service at King's College Hospital.
We offer a comprehensive, clinical diagnostic pathology service to King's, other NHS trusts, Primary Care and the independent sector. In addition, we support clinical and research trials in association with partners in the private and public sector.
We have now come to an end of a major re-development programme which has seen the investment of £8m in our pathology service. This includes investment in a state-of-the-art Blood Sciences Laboratory and a Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory. The Blood Sciences Laboratory, completed in October 2006, is one of the largest, integrated, automated laboratories in Europe, ensuring KingsPath remains at the forefront of developments in Pathology.
Following the issue of the Lord Carter of Coles' "Review of Pathology Services in England" report in August 2006, KingsPath was confirmed as one of only 12 national pilot projects for future pathology service reforms. This programme of pilot projects aims, in the words of the Health Minister, Lord Warner, to "trial the way forward in partnership with the NHS and provide robust evidence to guide future reforms".
KingsPath aims to meet all your pathology testing and diagnostic needs.
We offer one of the most comprehensive portfolios of Specialist tests in the UK, supporting the needs of over 600 external customers, across the full range of pathology disciplines:
• Microbiology & Virology through partnership with the HPA
Clinical & Technical Support: We know the ability to discuss test results with specialists is highly valued. Our experienced clinicians and scientists are on hand to provide advice and interpretation of test results at specialist and sub-specialist levels.
We also provide a full portfolio of routine pathology tests
The laboratories are open for receipt of specimens and clinical advice from 09:00 to 17:00hrs. An out of hours service is available for urgent work.
