Histology Services From Our Independent Laboratory

When was the last time you reviewed your histology partner?

Since 2007, we have been providing histology services to the private and NHS sector with each of our Consultant Pathologists reporting on dermatopathology, gastrointestinal pathology, breast pathology, uropathology and gynaecological pathology.

co Our service has built itself on the reputation of our turnaround times, quality of reporting and a highly personalised service. We operate our own laboratory, meaning that every part of our process from the microscopy and macro descriptions through to service level agreements and tissue processing is controlled to the highest quality standards.

Our courier service spans the whole of the UK and conforms to the UN3373 transport regulations. We provide all of the relevant consumables required to start using our service and with the back-up of our expert client services and account management teams, you can be up and ready to start using our service in less than 48 hours.

We maintain a close working relationship with all of our client stakeholders including but not limited to the theatre and clinical staff, consultants and their secretaries, hospital management and NHS Trusts.

No more chasing for results or being told that somebody will call you back when they never do. No more nameless contacts or phone numbers that just ring out. Our service helps to ease the administrative burden that your organisation may be facing and that ultimately, has an impact on the service provided to the patient. CPS is available around the clock, trusted by over 200 consultants UK wide, major hospital groups and the NHS. It’s why most of our clients think of CPS as an extension of their team.

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.
