The Molecular Pathology department, based within the Cellular Pathology Department at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (GHNHSFT), provides access to a comprehensive selection of specialist molecular pathology and genomic testing on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) specimens.

The department can access a wide range of testing for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes performed both internally and externally using a variety of different techniques including immunohistochemistry (IHC), Fluorescent in situ hybridisation (FISH), PCR based targeted assays, and next-generation sequencing (NGS).


If you are a clinician from outside of Gloucestershire Hospitals wishing to access FFPE material held by our department for testing, please contact the department via email ghn-tr.histologygenomics@nhs.net or phone 0300 422 3311/3313

Returning Reports

Reports for testing will be available on the Laboratory Information System (LIMS) within 3 days of receipt to the department. The requesting clinician will be emailed once a report is available on PAS.
