National Pathology Week (NPW) is our annual celebration of pathology, when we highlight the important contribution pathologists make to healthcare. Working in partnership with pathologists and laboratory scientists, our programme of events and activities aims to engage people of all ages, and improve public awareness and understanding of how pathologists and scientists diagnose disease.

National Pathology Week 2022 runs from 20 – 26 June. We've moved the celebrations from November to June as part of the College's Diamond Jubilee. The theme will be 'Pathology: past, present and future'. Look out for more announcements about our activities and how you can get involved at
