Pathology

The Pathology Directorate provides comprehensive laboratory services in support of diagnosis, monitoring and treatment for patients within the Trust’s hospitals and clinics, and for family practitioners within the local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

The Directorate is made up of three major disciplines:

  • Cellular Pathology (Histopathology, Non-Gynae Cytology, Andrology and Mortuary)
  • Microbiology/Infection Control
  • Blood Sciences (Haematology, Clinical Biochemistry, Immunology and Blood Transfusion)

All of these provide analytical, diagnostic and advisory services to their users. Analysis of specimens takes place within laboratories at Calderdale Royal Hospital and at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, which are managed as a single pathology service. Cellular Pathology and Microbiology are located at Calderdale Royal Hospital. Blood Sciences are located on both sites. The Directorate also provides an in-patient and out-patient phlebotomy (blood sample-taking) service at both of the Trust’s hospitals, and at certain clinics and surgeries within the community.
