Pathology team opens doors to students
On 4 April the Countess of Chester Hospital held a Pathology Open Day to educate and encourage students to enter professions in biomedical science.
The pathology labs opened its doors to visiting 16-18 year old students and provided them with laboratory tours, including the Haematology, Blood Transfusion, Biochemistry, Cellular Pathology and Immunology departments.
Students were asked questions such as, ‘When you’re in hospital and have bloods taken do you ever stop to wonder what happens next? Where does the sample go? How is it analysed? Is the lab at the Countess or is it taken elsewhere?’
Pathology Quality Manager Kathleen Holden CSci FIBMS commented, “The Pathology Open Day was proved very successful.”
