Winscribe for Pathology Laboratories

With cost improvement programmes currently underway and transformational changes taking place throughout the NHS, pathology departments are part of the drive to increase efficiencies and turnaround times.


In the past, pathology was seen as an isolated department within a trust, running its own workflow infrastructure independently. Recent pressure has been placed on laboratories to turn around samples faster, with workloads forecasted to increase even further. 

Due to these pressures clinicians and practice managers have started to look into improving their workflow solution with the ability to prioritise patient reports for better workload management

Using Winscribe solutions pathology departments can enhance patient reporting processes and speed up document turnaround times.

Improved Reporting, Faster Turnaround
