National Pathology Week

National Pathology Week (NPW) was a great success at LCL this year.  We advertised the event with an interview slot on the breakfast show on Radio Merseyside as well as Twitter, Facebook and other media. Almost 200 people had their HbA1c tested for free by Kath Ashton, Paul Kenton and Suzannah Phillips, and within four minutes were told their risk of diabetes. We identified 44 people with poorly controlled glucose, 8 of which were in the diabetic range for HbA1c and had no previous diagnosis. Our information stand manned by Charlotte Hill and others members of biochemistry promoting NPW and LCL attracted a lot of attention with many members of staff and the public having a go at urinalysis testing and taking away specially provided freebies!
