Meeting pathology demand: histopathology workforce census

This workforce census finds that only 3% of NHS histopathology departments have enough staff to meet clinical demand.

The report highlights the intense pressures that histopathologists face from increased workloads, such as new NHS screening programmes. In addition, services are facing more complex work as personalised medicine develops and guides new therapies. Outdated IT systems compound these pressures.
