United Kingdom’s National Health Service Expands its Largest Public/Private Clinical Pathology Laboratory Joint Venture

GSTS Pathology Inks Pathology Testing Services Pact with KingsPath in London

In the United Kingdom, clinical pathology laboratories are facing major changes in ownership, operation, and how they are funded. One very visible sign of these coming changes is the latest expansion in the nation’s largest public/private pathology testing joint venture that took effect just two weeks ago.

On September 24, Serco Group, plc, announced that KingsPath, the pathology service arm of the King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, was entering a pathology joint venture with GSTS Pathology. This partnership became effective on October 1.
