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 wellbeing of pregnant mothers and newborn children is a vital concern and a recent report produced by the Health and Social Care Committee highlighted the need for improvements in both the consistency and safety of maternity services. The July 2021 issue of the Bulletin takes an in-depth look at the health of mothers and children, exploring the issues surrounding and advances in pre- and perinatal care, including investigation of maternal safety incidents and screening of inherited disorders.

In this issue, we meet the incoming members of our International Committee, hearing about their backgrounds and aims while in their new roles. We also hear more about the developing situation with COVID-19, with articles on new variants of concern and vaccine-associated health issues.

In his editorial, President Dr Mike Osborn updates us on regional developments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, following on from recent elections and symposia. He also reflects on the cancer backlog and the College’s three-year strategy. Finally, he introduces us to our new Lay Trustee Board Member, Vince Voon.
