Diagnostic testing is an integral part of the healthcare equation. Almost nothing happens, whether diagnosing a disease or monitoring a therapy, without a laboratory test.
We provide a high quality diagnostic and consultative service to clinical users of South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and to primary and secondary care providers in the locality.
South Tees Pathology Service (excluding the Andrology Service) is a UKAS accredited medical laboratory ( No. 9210) to the ISO15189:2012 standards for Medical laboratories. On-site assessments occur annually to ensure ongoing compliance with these standards. Conformance to these standards and ongoing accreditation provides assurance to our service users of our commitment to maintain the highest levels of service quality.
Our UKAS scope of practice can be found here.
Andrology services are provided, but as a non-accredited service. The pathology service is licensed under the terms and conditions of HTA (Human Tissue Authority) and complies with regulatory standards as required by MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Authority).
