Pathology & Diagnostics Information Standards Collaboration Space

NHS Digital National Pathology and Diagnostics

Welcome to the NHS Digital National Pathology & Diagnostics Collaborative space. As part of NHS England CCIO7 work streams, NHS Digital will be delivering the ability to share pathology results across health and care. Within the scope of this work, we will define the information standards that form the basis of sharing pathology test requests and results for all of England. 

The National Pathology and Diagnostics work is split across five work streams (more information is available in the boxes below): Unified Test List (UTL), Units of Measure (UoM), Messaging Specifications, Data Model and Stakeholder Engagement. You will also see information below on the user needs that define the scope of our work and case studies for where we have trialled the standards that are in development.
