Clinical Support

We help healthcare organisations to meet ever-changing and increasingly complex healthcare requirements, without changing our focus on quality improvement, in an environment that is often under severe financial pressure.

We specialise in pathology through our joint venture, Viapath, which is the largest independent pathology service provider in the UK and was the first joint venture of its kind.  The Viapath joint venture also consists of Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.  Together we provide innovative and transformative pathology services for the NHS and private sector organisations in the UK and internationally.

About Viapath

Viapath delivers world-class pathology services to patients through clinical and scientific collaboration and is committed to providing a quality, cost-effective, service that improves patient outcomes.  Laboratories across all hospital sites are either accredited with, or working towards, the ISO 15189 medical laboratory standard. 

Attracting new employees to Viapath, providing them with professional development opportunities and pooling expertise and experience helps us to raise standards and produce a regular flow of new tests and better diagnostic strategies that are gradually transforming UK pathology. 

With its core role in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness, pathology is critical to managing society’s ever-changing healthcare challenges. Find out more:
