Information for patients

The information in the Laboratory Medicine section of this site is intended for health professionals and as such is often very technical.

Patients looking for information on pathology tests may find Lab Tests Online UK useful. The site is written by practising laboratory doctors and scientists to help patients understand the many clinical laboratory tests that are used in diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of disease.

A Lab Tests Online UK app is also available for iPhone/iPad and Android devices.
