National Pathology Programme Board

At recent meetings of the Executive Directors Team

and Chief Executives of NHS Wales organisations,

chaired by Paul Williams, it was confirmed that the

National Pathology Programme Board (NPPB) will

in future approve standards and protocols relating

to Pathology services and report progress with key

workstreams directly to the EDT. The NPPB

comprises Clinical Directors of Pathology and

Directorate Managers from all Health Boards and

national services. Key workstreams are:

Service planning and delivery

Workforce

IM&T and Information

Laboratory Information Management System

(LIMS)

The contract for the new All Wales LIMS has been

signed with Intersystems, the successful supplier.

Procurement has been carried out n partnership

with Informing Healthcare and with extensive input

from Pathology service colleagues from all

disciplines throughout Wales. An intensive period of

build, configuration and testing of the national

solution is now underway with the first Health Board

planned to go live in summer 2011.

The All Wales LIMS provides Pathology services in

Wales with an opportunity to harmonise practice,

improve clinical governance and increase capacity

and flexibility to meet future demand and new

service developments.

Further information is available on the Informing

Healthcare website www.wales.nhs.uk/ihc

Do Once and Share

Pathology services throughout Wales remain

committed to reducing duplication of effort by

collaboratively developing resources and sharing

good practice relating to CPA accreditation, MHRA

and HTA regulatory requirements.

Clinical Pathology Accreditation (CPA)

Phil Shred and Jan Chatfield from CPA attended the

recent meeting of the Pathology Quality Management

Forum (PQMF) to provide an update and answer

Questions on standards relating to POCT services.

Point of Care Testing

Education modules developed by the POCT

Coordinators for competence assessing end users

of a series of POCT devices have been

recommended for adoption UK-wide and will be

available through the Open College Network.

Currently the modules are available through the

Welsh division of the OCN Agored Cymru on

www.agored.org.uk

Human Tissue Authority (HTA)

At a recent inspection of a Post Mortem

establishment, the HTA rated the consent forms and

guide booklets developed collaboratively by

colleagues in Wales as the best they have seen. The

first All Wales training in consent taking based upon

these forms was held in July with a further session

planned for September.

Blood Transfusion Request Form

Procurement of the All Wales Blood Transfusion

request forms with attached sample bags has been

carried out in partnership with Welsh Health

Supplies. Details of how to order against the call-off

contract have been provided to all Health Boards.
