NHS England: Pathology services: performance as percentage compliance with 3D measures within the Manual for Cancer Services 2004

An effective Pathology Service is one of the underpinning factors in delivering timely diagnosis and monitoring treatment as highlighted in the Cancer Reform Strategy (2007). The metric considers performance of Pathology Services against the Manual for Cancer Services 2004, considering accreditation of Services, referral of specimens, minimum data set requirements, the provision of Pathology support to MDTs and arrangements for referring specimens outside the service. It also measures the response of the service to guidelines with regard testing for Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA).
