A hospital department has been praised for running a “tight ship” after a national accreditation assessment visit.

The cellular pathology team at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) are pleased with the recommendation to maintain accreditation to International Standards following a recent visit from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

Staff were praised for their professionalism after receiving feedback from the team of assessors.

The laboratory team of 125 undertakes more than 120,000 tests a year on biopsies and tissue samples that support the diagnosis of cancer and other disease and ensure that NNUH patients receive a safe and effective service.

Geoffrey Curran, NNUH service operations manager for cellular pathology, said: “The assessors were very complimentary of the department and gave very positive feedback. They said staff were professional, knowledgeable and competent with excellent documentation with good audits, and that the department runs as a tight ship.

“Well done to everyone involved who received a big thumbs up from independent assessors.”
