The Professional Standards Department aims to ensure that agreed standards are maintained, developed and delivered across pathology services for the benefit of patients and the public.
Continuing professional development
The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme provides a framework by which pathologists maintain their knowledge and skills.
Professional Performance provides formal advice to individuals, employers and external organisations to support the maintenance of standards of professional practice. This extends to include advice on return to work, remediation and the delivery of individual or service reviews.
Revalidation advice is provided to Responsible Officers, appraisers and individual doctors from a pathology specific perspective.
