Magistrates tour our laboratories

On Wednesday 21 September 30 magistrates from Bedfordshire were given a behind the scenes tour of the state-of-the-art hub pathology laboratories at St George’s.

There were short presentations about each discipline (Microbiology, Blood Sciences and Cellular Pathology) followed by tours of the mortuary and laboratories where the magistrates were able to see all the cutting edge technology and equipment used in the laboratories and had the opportunity to ask questions about how samples are processed.

Presentations and tours of the laboratories were provided by Saghar Missaghian-Cully, Managing Director; Sean Lynch, Discipline Manager for Clinical Blood Sciences; Jamie Laughlin, Discipline Manager for Microbiology; John Du Parcq, Consultant Histopathologist; and Robin Whittaker, Discipline Manager for Cellular Pathology.

Some of the feedback from the magistrates:

“What a brilliant day! I thought the tour(s) were fascinating and the enthusiasm of the staff was refreshing. I learnt a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it.”

“Very many thanks for the superb visit today. Peter and I were so interested and I thought the team were very professional.” “It was fascinating. They certainly bought things to life.”

“It was very interesting I spent my working life hearing results in clinical meetings, or collecting samples for TB so that side was covered. Having the ability to hold back and re-look at previous samples is something I didn’t know was possible.”
