Russ, I believe I heard that concerns were raised following the normal 2% 
audit of previous work. I wonder how many (pressurised) UK labs actually do 
this? Its an RCPath recommendation I believe.
On R4's TODAY program this morning I heard a professor of histopathology 
explaining that pathologists don't give "results" as other path disciplines 
do, they give a clinical opinion. In the same way that other clinicians can 
get a clinical opinion wrong, so can pathologists. It was a good explanation 
for the laity. 

I'm sure that all of us who work in our underfunded NHS would second your 
remarks. Loads of Standards - no staff!

The only reason I'm still here is 'cos I like the pretty colours and the 
smell of xylene ;>)
