Summaries of lectures on the comprehensive Biomedical Science Congress programme are requested from individual speakers. In a final review of this important biennial event, Pathology in Practice dips into the education, management, support staff and seminar programmes.

The challenges faced by the NHS are bigger than have ever been seen before.
