NSW Health Pathology

NSW Health Pathology provides expert pathology and forensic services to help protect community health and safety.

Professor Roger Wilson, NSW Health Pathology’s Executive Director Clinical Governance and Quality, said that research and innovation lies at the heart of its efforts to help create better health and justice systems.

“Every day, our scientists and clinicians take part in innovative research to improve public health and safety, particularly in areas of unmet need. These research efforts, often carried out in collaboration with others, allow us to be at forefront of new tests, technologies and scientific discoveries,” Professor Wilson said.

High quality research drives innovation. It advances our understanding of the world around us and helps drive change, deliver better services and improved outcomes. That’s why NSW Health Pathology has established a dedicated research and innovation advisory committee and new governance framework.

“We’re also establishing a dedicated research strategy that will outline our strategic research priorities and help us foster even stronger collaborations with research partners across the state and beyond. It is these partnerships that are fundamental to transforming our research practices in the lab into meaningful solutions that help better protect the health and safety of our communities,” Professor Wilson said.

NSW Health Pathology operates about 60 laboratories; has around 200 pathology collection services in NSW public hospitals, communities and critical care settings; employs over 4,000 staff; and conducts more than 61 million tests per year.
