The July Bulletin celebrates the 75th anniversary of the NHS with a collection of articles that demonstrate the impact that pathologists have on patients. This issue features articles on the medical examiner service, the use of patient data in transfusion, the paediatric and perinatal pathology workforce crisis, the online provision of lab results and the impact of immunisation on healthcare.  

The issue also features an article on the impact of veterinary pathologists on the conservation of the rare Partula snail, as well as guidance on how to write a successful blog by the College blogger, Chris Tiplady. You can read about our new international strategy and the International team’s work in sub-Saharan Africa. There is also a timely evaluation of the impact of single-use plastics in oral and maxillofacial pathology. 

In his editorial, Professor Mike Osborn congratulates the new President Elect, Dr Bernie Croal, on his recent election. Professor Osborn also covers the College response to the recently published NHS long-term workforce plan, highlighting the critical need for major workforce investment.
