Pathology molecular lab
The big builds programme is investing £5.3million into a new pathology molecular lab at Ipswich Hospital.
The lab will have a key role to play in the hospital’s response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). It will allow our pathology team to carry out more tests on a range of investigations from flu, MRSA to rapid cancer tests. Investing in these modern diagnostic tool kits will help our patients for years to come.
As diseases can behave in certain ways the pathology team looks at the science for what causes them and how they affect our patients through examinations of samples taken with diagnostic toolkits. With faster results our clinical teams will be able to treat patients more quickly.
The new pathology molecular lab will open in August 2021.Back to top
