For GPs

Airedale Pathology aims to be a fully accredited end to end pathology service which enables those responsible for delivering healthcare to achieve their goals. We care passionately about providing quality services, easily accessible for all by tailoring our service to best fit the needs of our users. Airedale pathology provides a high quality diagnostic and consultative service to clinical users of Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, Primary Care Trusts and health services in the locality.

The department is situated on level one of Airedale Hospital, at the east end of the main hospital corridor. It consists of four main areas:

  • Clinical chemistry

  • Haematology and blood transfusion

  • Histopathology and mortuary services

  • Microbiology

Additionally within Airedale pathology there are a number of support services comprising phlebotomy services, pre-analytic laboratory services, consumables and our own dedicated IT team.

Airedale pathology was the pioneer within the region in the use of order communications to allow for electronic requesting of pathology tests. This has now been established for many years. It also provides paperless reports via its use of the ICE results server and seamless integration into SystmOne for GP surgery access.
