Pathology day to be held by Norwich hospital staff
Members of the public are being invited to find out more about how staff at a city hospital diagnose illness and disease.
The pathology department of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has organised a hands-on Pathology Day event at The Forum, from 10.30am to 4pm on Saturday, March 17, as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Royal College of Pathologists.
There will be a hands-on exhibition in the Millennium Library, and also talks in the Curve at the Forum, from pathologists and clinicians on various topics, including the heart, child birth and blood vessels.
Pathology plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, follow up treatment and assessment of the outcome of disease in the vast majority of patients.
All the main sub-specialties in pathology will be represented, including chemical pathology, microbiology, haematology and cellular pathology. Everyone is welcome to drop in and join in the activities.
