Stakeholder Engagement

Pathology Informatics National User Group (PINUG)

The National Pathology and Diagnostics team at NHS Digital are working closely alongside other key strategic partners to enable the sharing of Pathology results across all healthcare settings. To make this happen we are looking to engage with as many key stakeholders as possible to provide updates, share knowledge and potentially collaborate on the work we are undertaking.  

The Pathology Informatics National User Group (PINUG) aims to encourage a two-way dialogue between NHS Digital and other interested parties, allowing us to successfully align with all stakeholder group requirements.   

The group meets every two months via MS Teams and consists of clinicians, diagnostic professionals and system suppliers.  The meeting is chaired by our lead clinician, who is member of the Royal College of Pathologists (RCPath). The forum allows us to provide parties with key updates and encourages stakeholders to share relevant news and information with us.

If you would like to be part of the PINUG please email us at for regular meeting invites and updates.
