Digital Pathology: Experiences in Implementation from North Wales NHS

sponsored by Leica Biosystems

The merging of three North Wales hospital pathology departments formed one of the largest labs in the country, serving a population of 700,000. The lab supports three hospitals separated over nearly 70 miles, introducing geographical, transport, and workload challenges. To address this, significant investment was made in IT development, including digital pathology. A scanning system was installed in 2015, and through 2016 a first phase verification study was carried out on 3000 cases, to confirm suitability of digital pathology for routine diagnostics. Here we discuss lessons learned from the implementation, and the future of digital pathology at North Wales NHS.
