Review of Management Arrangements within the Microbiology Division - Public Health Wales NHS Trust

1 Dec 2013 - 1:19pm

Microbiology services have a major role to play in the delivery of clinical services for patients, as well as the wider protection of public health. GPs and hospital doctors rely on accurate and reliable information from microbiology services to help them diagnose, treat and prevent the spread of infections.

As part of our programme of audit work at the Trust, we carried out a review of microbiology services. Our review sought to answer the question: ‘Are management arrangements within the Microbiology Service Division effective?’.We concluded that the Trust has a clear vision for microbiology services but current arrangements and structures are not yet sufficiently robust to support its delivery.
