In response to this changing landscape, Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust (now part of Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust) have come together in partnership to develop a new model for delivering pathology services across North West London. This partnership is based upon a vision of a modern, innovative and sustainable service, which will deliver outstanding quality to users and patients alike. The modernisation of pathology services also provides a great opportunity to drive translational research and innovation in all aspects of pathology, as well as supporting training for medical and scientific staff.
We believe the proposed option of consolidating pathology provision across four Trusts into a hub and spoke model, whereby the majority of routine, specialist, non-urgent activity is delivered at the hub and pathology required urgently for the immediate treatment of the patient is performed in 24/7 essential service laboratories based at the spokes, best delivers this vision. The service will be provided through an arms-length organisation (ALO) North West London (NWL) Pathology, owned by the partner Trusts. The ALO will be a single organisation, with a single income and expenditure account, run by its own management team delivering a quality service to the patient and users alongside best value for money.
The target operating model (TOM) detailed within this full business case is the product of a further nine months of collective effort across the four Trusts, from pathology staff, clinicians, senior Trust management, the programme team and advisors.”
