World Quality Day

South West London Pathology’s first World Quality Day event took place in November. It was a great success with the quality managers from each discipline organising activities open to SWLP staff, trust staff and the public.

One of the most popular activities was the UV handwashing kit brought along by Ifeoma Ekwueme from Medical Microbiology. The kit tested how good we all are at washing our hands — the results showed most of us need to improve our technique! Jokotade Alli-Balogun talked about the Ebola virus and what the Trust was doing for real and potential cases. There was also a microscope to look at bacteria.

Jo Sheldon, from Immunology, talked about allergy testing and let people have a go at the pipette test which was to test how accurately people could fill a pipette tube. Nawal Rahim and Meera Mylvaganam from cellular pathology, wheeled in their microscopes and explained what they do and how they maintain quality standards. Guests also had the chance to have a go themselves and look at samples using the microscopes.

Abirami Koneswaran, David Greenwood and Lucy Anna Staples from Clinical Blood Sciences had a number of posters on display. One showed what happens to a sample as it passes through the laboratory and how quality is maintained at all times. They also had a short quiz to identify cells.

Everyone who came was encouraged to complete a quiz and first prize was a book token and a box of chocolates.
