Join Malcolm Robinson to find out how to set up tours of your pathology labs for young patients

About this event

'Harvey's Gang', established by Chief Biomedical Scientist in Blood Transfusion Western Sussex Hospital Trust, Malcolm Robinson, in 2014, became a registered Charity 1169181 in September 2015.

A request to be shown round the blood sciences lab by a little boy called Harvey in 2013 became the start of what has become an international PBM initiative to increase the involvement and knowledge of patients and their families in the laboratory aspects of their transfusion treatment.

Harvey's Gang lab tours for critically-ill children and their families now take place in over 100 hospitals around the UK and beyond.

Join Malcolm for this special National Pathology Week webinar and hear his inspiring story about the award-winning Harvey's Gang initiative. Malcolm will also explain how lab tours can be set up in your hospital or department, and what support he and team can provide.

The Royal College of Pathologists is a charity with over 11,000 members worldwide, which include those from cellular pathology, haematology, clinical biochemistry and medical microbiology. Although some pathologists work in laboratories, many work directly with patients in hospitals and the community. Together they are involved in over 70% of all diagnoses, as well as playing an important role in disease prevention, treatment and monitoring.
