Pathology Laboratory Handbook

The Pathology Laboratory at North Devon District Hospital provides a high quality, cost-effective service to the Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, general practitioners and community hospitals within the North Devon region. All laboratories are staffed by Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered healthcare scientists, assisted by trained support staff. The information in these pages is for use by clinicians and healthcare staff. We do not offer advice to members of the public.

If you have been asked by your GP or other healthcare professional to attend the hospital for a blood test, the phlebotomy service, details are available here.

The Pathology Service is UKAS accredited to ISO 15189. For more information on the accreditation status on individual tests, click here.
