Pathology careers

At Spire Healthcare we believe that pathology services play an essential part in the delivery of high quality diagnostic support services for clinicians and patients alike. In fact, the vast majority of diagnoses depend upon laboratory tests, so high quality, responsive biomedical science services are truly at the centre of patient care. This is why we took the strategic decision to actively develop our in-house pathology services rather than out-sourcing.

In addition to conducting pathology tests for our own hospitals, we also conduct tests for external customers through Spire Pathology Services meaning that when you join a pathology team at Spire you are joining one of the UK's largest networks of independent pathology laboratories. We were proud to be the official provider of pathology services at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and in 2013 we performed over 1.5 million tests.We provide a range of blood tests and investigations, from routine blood tests to highly complex analysis, including tests to diagnose allergic reactions, tests for vitamin deficiency, hormone tests for fertility planning and cancer tests. 

We continue to invest in our pathology services, doubling the size of our flagship pathology laboratory in Elstree in 2012. This means that we are able to offer an ever expanding range of specialist tests, making Spire the perfect place to build your skills in a dynamic, learning focused environment.  The services we provide are continually monitored, evaluated and improved where necessary, that’s why we use Clinical Pathology Accreditation (CPA) as a key corporate benchmark for pathology clinical governance.

Our team consists of a wide mix of skills and competencies and you’ll be part of a strong team of committed professionals who are focused on driving excellence.
