There is a national programme looking at all of pathology including test names, as well as results. This will be providing detailed guidance in relation to all of pathology in the future.

The current Pathology Bounded Code List (PBCL) are Read codes, these have been mapped to SNOMED CT and GP systems should use these maps to obtain the SNOMED CT codes for recording pathology results in GP systems.
