Laboratory Medicine

Laboratory medicine works to diagnose disease, evaluate the effectiveness of treatment and to research the causes and cures of disease.

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has one of the largest laboratories in the United Kingdom, performing more than 21 million tests each year across three sites.

See an A-Z list of tests carried out by our Division of Laboratory Medicine (DLM) and download our sample acceptance policy.

The DLM is divided into a number of specialist departments.

The DLM is registered with Clinical Pathology Accreditation (CPA), which is part of the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS). Each department in the Division is assessed for accreditation by CPA/UKAS at regular intervals.
