The Nuffield Trust, in partnership with the Association of Independent Pathology Providers, hosted a ‘Future of Pathology’ event to explore how pathology is changing and what the future of laboratory medicine might be over the next 5-10 years. The event contributed to a broader project being undertaken by the Nuffield Trust alongside NHS England and the Royal College of Pathologists which focused on the following questions:

  1. Where are we with the rationalisation of pathology services and where is this going?
  2. How will changes in technology and the growth of ‘omics’ change laboratory services in the next 10 years?
  3. What are the implications of these changes for the wider system and how clinicians will practise?
  4. Are there workforce or other implications that arise from this?

As well as the opportunity to share intelligence at the event, interviews with experts and a high level review of current literature have been conducted. A short report was produced following the event.
