We have a large and very active paediatric pathology casebook and also provide peri-natal pathology. Our pathologists give comprehensive and sensitive autopsies for many Trusts throughout the country to help parents understand the reasons behind the loss of loved ones.

Skin pathology is covered by several pathologists including our trust's lead dermatology consultant thus we provide a 'holistic' approach for skin patients.

A referral service is provided for other NHS trusts and pathology providers in many of these areas.

There is a cellular pathology service provided across the Barts Health NHS Trust, Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. Please see the user handbooks provided for more information on these services.
