The Transforming Pathology Partnership is a new consortium of six NHS Trusts which are working together to provide a transformed pathology service to the six Trusts and the CCGs in their region. The transformed service is to be delivered via a hub and satellite structure that will significantly change the way that pathology is delivered across the six Trusts to acute and community patients. The consortium will come into effect on 1 April 2014.

The role of the Medical Director is to provide corporate, strategic and clinical leadership and direction to all clinical staff within TPP consistent with the delivery of the highest quality care in the context of the organisation’s quality strategy and business priorities.
