The Cytology Department studies cells for the presence of cancer. Cell samples from the cervical smears, urine and lungs are placed on slides, stained and examined under the microscope.

The department handles approximately 40,000 specimens annually, including approximately 35,000 Gynaecological samples and approximately 5,000 non-Gynaecological specimens.

Please refer to our pre-testing information and publications for collection details and advice.
