Ophthalmic pathology

There is an NHS National Specialist Ophthalmic Pathology Service (NSOPS), which, along with reporting specimens from the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, is a tertiary referral centre commissioned by NCG (National Commissioning Group), offering a free-of-charge ophthalmic pathology service to all NHS Trusts in England.

The team currently provides a comprehensive service to a number of regional and national NHS providers and are available to discuss any requests for reporting specimens and possibly attendance at MDTs externally.

There are two Consultant Histopathologists that specialise in ophthalmic pathology and the team also includes an experienced dedicated Lead Biomedical Scientist.
