Bulletin

The Bulletin is the College's quarterly professional membership magazine. We cater for the interests of our diverse readership, provoking discussion and comment on topics that range across the 17 specialties of pathology.

The latest Bulletin is now available digitally, giving you greater flexibility in how you access it and related content.

New features on the full issue PDF make navigation easy, allowing you to quickly return to the contents page, and easily access references and related documents.

The October issue of the Bulletin explores the innovative role of pathology in cancer screening, diagnosis, prevention and treatment. This issue also discusses how next-generation pathology and precision treatments can be integrated into everyday practice and the challenges around this. The College's work on highlighting the cancer backlog is also featured.

Elsewhere in the issue, the College explains how the memorandum of understanding with the Care Quality Commission will further support the delivery of safe and high-quality pathology services to patients. We also hear about the College's plans for the upcoming National Pathology Week, which runs from 1 to 7 November, alongside International Pathology Day, held on 10 November.

In his editorial, Professor Mike Osborn highlights the backlog in care caused by COVID-19, as well as the existing issues in workforce and IT exacerbated by the pandemic. Professor Osborn updates members on recent and upcoming meetings with government ministers and policymakers, which focus on the need for deeper investment in pathology. Finally, he covers the College's work with other organisations around the blood tube shortage, the recent Patient Safety Awareness Week as well as opportunities to join the College as part of the Trustee Board.
