RE: Daily Digest

From:"Auld, John"

Dear all across the pond

Why do Histo techs and med techs need different qualifications, why are they
paid differently?
Here in the UK all pathology disciplines require the same qualifications and
we are all paid on the same scales. However there has just been a new grade
(Mega bucks) created only for Cytology at this time but other disciplines
may get it eventually, hopefully.

Just curious, hope you all have a good weekend
