We Are An Independent Diagnostic Histopathology Laboratory.

For Over 15 Years, CPS has been providing innovative and collaborative services to the NHS and private sector.

Cellular Pathology Services has been providing comprehensive and customised histopathology and cytopathology services to the independent and NHS sector for over 15 years. Our team comprises of over 13 clinical, scientific and operational staff that help to support and provide a fully managed histopathology, 24×7.

We deliver a complete range of histology services with rapid turnaround times directly from our own CQC registered and ISO 15189:2012 accredited laboratory. Our fully managed service reduces the everyday pressures and time-consuming tasks that your staff spend on chasing histopathology reports, tissue processing updates, callbacks from consultant pathologists, courier updates and more.

Our Consultant Pathologists fully support your patients’ care pathway by participating in person or remotely at MDT’s whilst being available around the clock for Clinicopathological discussions. We participate in all relevant technical External Quality Assurance (EQA) schemes, which are used to ensure the quality of the tissue processing and staining procedures.

From our dedicated account management and pathology training packages, through to our specialised client services team and out of hours support; we are here whenever you need us. Each of our Consultant Cellular Pathologists is experienced in general histopathology but also sub specialises in particular aspects of pathology. These include dermatopathology, uropathology, breast pathology, gynaecological pathology and gastrointestinal pathology.

We are committed to investing in and developing our people to the highest possible standard; as evident by obtaining IBMS approved training laboratory status.

We understand all too well the demands of patients and the anxious times they face when waiting for results. That’s why 90% of cases are reported on within 72 hours; accessible through our secure online web-based portal, email or phoned through by our reporting consultant pathologists.

Dr Dev Shah
Consultant Dermatologist & Mohs Surgeon

I have been using CPS since their inception over 5 years ago and they provide me with a first class results service and I recommend them highly. Because they provide an individualized service I don’t have many queries but I know that I am welcome to phone them with enquiries and am also confident that should any results be adverse I always receive a phone call to apprise me of the situation prior to my receiving the formal results. This is an extremely efficient and user-friendly service that I would highly recommend to all physicians.

Our clinic has won multiple industry awards and a business award. Our patients travel from all corners of the UK and indeed from abroad too. They expect the very best as our reputation reflects. A vital ingredient to help us offer exemplary experience is ensuring we partner with top-tier service providers. After considerable research, we chose Cellular Pathology Services. They could not have been any more helpful in getting us set up quickly and without any stress. Within days we had sent of some tissue biopsies and had the results back in less than 48 hours! This was preceded with a very friendly welcome call from the Consultant Histopathologist. Every step of the process is perfect. Thank you to the whole team who make it work just right
