South East London Pathology Services:

Why is the hub being created?

Published: 18th March 2021

To be completed by 2024, this laboratory will be at the heart of our plans to deliver and transform pathology services in South East London. It will become one of the largest, purpose-built pathology laboratories in the UK, capable of processing around 70 per cent of all pathology activity in the region.

It will be converted to create a modern, spacious work environment with open-plan and shared office space, clinical training rooms, training rooms for microscopy, spaces for community meetings and privacy areas. It will also have a staff café, vending services, a multi-faith room, cycle storage and showers, among other facilities.

As we seek to build on the strengths of today’s service provided by Viapath and the NHS, the hub and spoke model will work by separating out urgent from non-urgent tests to dramatically improve testing turnaround times and patient care. It will also free up valuable hospital estate to be used by the NHS for other patient services.
