Pathology is a term used to describe a wide variety of tests on blood and other biological samples to assist consultants and doctors in treating their patients.

The Holly Hospital has an onsite Pathology Laboratory providing a range of pathology tests and investigations on blood and other biological specimens. With a combination of state-of-the-art instrumentation and computerisation, a highly experienced team of consultants and fully qualified biomedical scientists, we offer a fast, high quality and flexible service six days a week and an on-call service outside of these times.

Please see the Pathology User Guide for more information on these services.
