Response:

Does your pathology service currently meet the 1.6% cost of service to Trust operating expenditure target as set out by the 2016 report? We are reviewing this issue at the moment and are not in a position to give an accurate figure.
 Do you currently have a managed service arrangement within Pathology (entire disciplines or pan pathology, not individual analysers)? We do have some MSCs, large portions of disciplines, but not whole disciplines and not pan pathology.
 If yes, please can you provide the Suppliers name, expiry date, and average annual cost? This is commercially sensitive information. We are going through a tendering process at the moment.
Are you planning on collaborating with another NHS entity to provide pathology services? We already collaborate extensively with neighbours locally, regionally and nationally
