Pathology is the study of the nature of disease and its causes, development, processes and consequences.


Pathology is a key clinical service and between 60-70% of NHS diagnoses rely on it.


Pathology supports community healthcare and public health (especially communicable diseases), as well as GP and hospital care.

About the Partnership

The Kent Pathology Partnership (KPP) is a collaborative initiative between Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust and East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust. This partnership involves the integration of Pathology and so offers an opportunity to further enhance the service for the patients, clinicians and commissioners.
