Collect the same data for Cellular Pathology?
Cellular pathology activity figures are suspect - for example Isle of Wight reports a quarterly test activity of 114,000. Isle of Wight serves a population of 140,000, so pretty much everyone on the island has 4 histology samples taken per year - really?
UHB reports an annual cellular pathology activity in excess of 1 million tests - really?
I suspect some people are giving annual workload as quarterly, some counting slides, some counting blocks, some counting pots received and some counting the number of cases through the door.
Without a defined unit to count and accurate checking the data is misleading and therefore worthless.
