Royal acknowledgement for Lancashire and South Cumbria’s response to the pandemic

Lancashire and South Cumbria Pathology Collaboration’s work in response to the Covid-19 pandemic has been recognised by The Duke of Cambridge.

This comes after The Duke spoke over the phone with the Pathology Collaboration’s Associate Director of Transformation and Strategy, Gillian Crankshaw.

Gillian informed The Duke about the collective team effort made across the system over the last 12 months piloting the saliva testing (LAMP) as well as offering rapid and high throughput PCR testing.

Talking about the call, Gillian said: “I was absolutely delighted to speak to The Duke.

“We spoke about the real team effort to set up and deliver Covid-19 testing across Lancashire and South Cumbria and it was so good to get recognition for the hard work that everyone has done.

“We have capacity across the area to do over 7,000 tests per day across acute trusts for patients and staff and it was acknowledged that we have done a good job which makes me feel really proud.”
