  • The VS120-S virtual slide scanning systems effectively bring imaging and microscopy closer together, providing an advanced and highly versatile virtual slide.

  • By generating an exact copy of the whole specimen at high resolution, users can view and analyse samples regardless of their proximity to the microscope.

  • All images are stored on a central server, making simultaneous, world-wide evaluation possible.

  • The VS120-S5 system allows standard slides to be manually loaded.

  • VS120-S system provides an efficient method of communicating images and data.

  • We hope to produce e-learning vignettes on Moodle especially using difficult ICA cases

Written comments for discussion

Written comments for discussion

  • Introductory course:

  • Feedback from trainees back in the lab have always been positive and they have appreciated the opportunity to spend time away from the lab to be able to just concentrate on cytology theory and practical.

  • Course is well structured and organised

  • Updates:

  • Experienced staff always report back that courses have been very interesting and useful.

  • Occasional comments about not always having sufficient time to screen slides

  • Newly revamped course has ben well received by those attending in 2014.

  • The Future trends lecture has improved where the level of detail is much more appropriate

  • Non-Gynaecological course:

  • Introductory courses very good

  • Would like an Update courses developed

  • Would like FNA morphology course

  • Difficult to find a NG course only one p.a. knowing the level the yare aimed at as we might have requirement for Introductory or an update course

  • Topics Covered on Service Provider Meeting:

  • HPV Testing and effect on service

  • Whether NHSCSP recognises uncertainty felt by a lot of staff in regard to HPV primary screening roll out.

  • Has the NHSCSP considered any future re-training of staff, or does it consider the responsibility to be that of employing organisations ?

  • Cancer Audit?

National cervical cytology education training committee nccetc february 2013 clarification

National Cervical Cytology Education & Training Committee (NCCETC) February 2013 -clarification

  • Due to ongoing service and laboratory mergers, we are aware of an increase in the number of laboratories exploring the possibility of having mandatory update training delivered on site.

  • All mandatory training has to be delivered through an NHSCSP approved cytology training centre to ensure that standards are maintained and the quality of training preserved

  • This training has to be held in facilities which meet the assessment criteria for physical resources.


National cervical cytology education training committee nccetc february 2013 clarification1

National Cervical Cytology Education & Training Committee (NCCETC) February 2013 -clarification

  • Mandatory training courses for non-medical laboratory staff must be delivered by an NHSCSP approved cytology training centre.

  • Mandatory training courses includes:

  • Post registration staff: 3 day/3 yearly updates

  • Advanced Specialist Diploma in Cervical Cytology

  • LBC conversion

  • Pre-registration staff: Introductory/Follow up/Pre-exam/Tuition days


National cervical cytology education training committee nccetc february 2013 clarification2

National Cervical Cytology Education & Training Committee (NCCETC) February 2013 -clarification

  • Study days and workshops provided by non-NHSCSP approved training providers are an important part of CPD but do not count towards and individual’s mandatory update

  • Examples would include attending professional conferences

  • Attending one day master classes


Future of city guilds qualification

Future of City & Guilds qualification

  • City & Guilds is unable to obtain the necessary funding or approvals to build a case to extend, amend or develop the Diploma beyond the expiry date.

  • The City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Cervical Cytology 3166-01 will expire on 31st December, 2013.

  • After that date no new learners can be registered for the award.

  • Learners who register between now and the end of this year, and those currently in the system, will have until 31st December, 2016 to complete the qualification and achieve certification.


Standardisation issues

Standardisation issues

  • Consistency of assessment judgements through standardisation activity is a key area for Centre development

  • Some standardisation exercises have been undertaken at regional assessor's meetings

  • Some of these exercises had highlighted discrepancies in interpretation of pass criteria or identified specific assessor training needs

  • Joint assessors single yearly meeting at a central location will be held to meet C&G CPD requirements for assessors.

  • Another C&G Master class is planned in Birmingham autumn 2014, I will circulate date when available

  • Cross marking standardisation audit for London – by email
