Innovative digital pathology network deployed in Oxford

Royal Philips and Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) NHS Foundation Trust have announced plans to create a digital pathology network to help drive faster and more efficient diagnoses for patients. The OUH Trust will deploy the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, which will serve as a central laboratory service for partner sites at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Swindon.

This collaboration will help reduce delays in slide transport times, encourage more efficient workflows across the sites, and enable quicker access to specialist pathology opinions. Digital pathology will also support NHS Improvement’s proposed pathology networks, bringing together clinical expertise with the goal of enhancing patient outcomes.

 “As an NHS Global Digital Exemplar committed to improving patient care by embracing the latest digital technologies and cross-site collaborations, this partnership aims to modernise patient care and offer innovative world-leading services,” said Professor Clare Verrill (pictured with Dr Lisa Browning), Honorary Consultant in Cellular Pathology, Oxford University Hospitals. “Initially starting with some specialist areas, we hope to soon make our pathology services fully digital, meaning our laboratory teams can maximise efficiency and focus on analysing samples rather than spending time manually transporting slides between hospitals.”
