STRUCTURE: The foundation trust is looking at merging its pathology service with that of two other FTs in the south east coast region – Frimley Park NHS Foundation Trust and Ashford and St Peter’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Board papers state: “One important opportunity which is… now ready for formal consideration by the board is the proposed creation of an integrated Surrey Pathology Service embracing ourselves, Frimley Park and Ashford and St Peters.”
