Neuropathology as a specialty in the UK

jamesIronsideI am delighted to inform members that the UK Departments of Health have approved the application from BNS/RCPath to allow Neuropathology to have full speciality status. This greatly strengthens the position of Neuropathology in the UK and will allow us to improve recruitment, training and assessment in our “new” speciality. Much more work will be required over a challenging timescale in order to fulfil the requirements of the General Medical Council for the creation of a speciality in Neuropathology; more information on this will be forthcoming shortly, after which your further assistance will be required.

I am most grateful to everyone in BNS who has helped us achieve this success, along with the President and other colleagues in RCPath. In particular, I would like to thank Dr John Xuereb for his tireless efforts on this most important matter, which have been critical to this favourable outcome.

Best wishes,

James W Ironside CBE FRSE

Immediate Past-President, BNS
