Full story in HSJ, 20 September 2018
An NHS pathology contract worth more than £2bn has been put on the market with the aim of linking eight trusts’ laboratory services.
Bidders will compete to provide the full range of pathology disciplines for the trusts, whose locations range from south east London to the Sussex coast. The procurement could lead to the formation of one of the larger pathology networks in the NHS.
However, one trust in the region is not part of the procurement because it is considering a solution that keeps its pathology provision within the NHS.
