  3. Why? • Scoping Pathalba • Scoping the quality of the pathology infrastructure • Communication • Gaining perspectives and viewpoints from Herceptin to colorectal screening from specialist reporting to accreditation May 06

  4. The Reception? • Professional and cordial • Questions about where the network was going and its function • Some dismissive • No Department seemed disinterested May 06

  5. May 06

  6. Overview • The majority of departments seemed to have secured significant investment in laboratory upgrade and new technology • Vacancies anecdotally did not seems as bad as 3 years ago • CPA status varied although 2 Departments had significant long standing problems. • No evidence of significant backlogs of work. • Evidence of pressure to deliver under a significant backdrop of change May 06

  7. What? • Cervical cytology- Briefing paper • Herceptin – Questionnaire, S. Exec Briefing paper and status report • Pathalba – Scoped need, Board decision paper and tender • Colorectal screening roll out • Launch meeting • Web site • Developed communication strategy • Developed a framework and initial workplan for SPAN • Facilitated plans for movement of work • Consulted on National Clinical Datasets • Scotland/Malawi partnership • In conjunction with National Procurement negotiated additional discount of £40k with Dako • Provided advice to organisations and management on pathology issues May 06

  8. Benchmarking • Kerr and Delivering for Health • All Laboratories in Scotland to Keele Benchmark by 2006 • Why? • How do we compare? May 06

  17. Role Extension May 06

  18. Conclusions from Dec SPAN Paper • Any site must meet the published guidelines and EQA requirements • In line with ‘Delivering for Health’ FISH to be provided on 3 or 4 centre model • Pathology testing is unlikely to be a constraint to timely treatment (Funding Dependant) • Testing where regionalised needs to provide a standardised timely service to meet local MDT needs.

  21. National Clinical Dataset Development Programme May 06

  22. Major Incident Recovery Plan • Backup computer systems • Retain partial functionality on site where possible • Labs in other centres/regions • Plans for staff movement • "sift carefully through rubble; reassemble specimens and staff; process as normal..." May 06

  23. What next? • Steering Group • Scoping major areas of development • Prioritising the development through workplan • Encouragement of current advisory structures/committees to feed through SPAN • New groups where appropriate • Develop further initiatives in histopathology, cervical cytology and molecular pathology May 06
