Clinical effectiveness

The Clinical Effectiveness Team supports pathology laboratories to deliver the ‘right test, right time, every time’ for patients. To achieve this, we:

  • provide a national framework of standards through which pathology laboratories can demonstrate the clinical effectiveness of their services
  • provide high quality, evidence-based and NICE-accredited guidance
  • support professional development to deliver and reward high quality audit and service improvement activities 
  • are developing a portfolio of relevant key performance/assurance indicators
