Pathology

The Pathology service at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust offers a comprehensive range of pathology services, which are fully supported by a wide range of highly experienced and qualified technical, scientific and consultant-grade staff. The key service objective is to provide, interpret and report analytical results with appropriate attention to quality, speed and economy, and where necessary, provide advice on any further investigations that are indicated.

Pathology processes over 3.5 million samples every year including from patients within Addenbrooke’s Hospital and from GP surgeries and other hospitals across the East of England. Many of our departments are nationally and internationally recognised specialist centres and we receive referrals from across the world for a wide range of complex and rare disorders.

Contacting CUH Pathology

The Service Desk is based in Newmarket and provides a front line support service to all users of the CUH Pathology service including GPs, community nurses and midwives, hospital staff, patients and laboratory staff.

The team can also direct calls to the duty doctors or individual departments as needed.

The Service Desk can also provide information on turnaround times, tests available and ordering processes or you can contact us using the contact details listed for the individual departments.
