25 August 2015The BAC is keen to assist its members and has developed a funding opportunity supporting research, development and audit in cytopathology. A discretionary fund will be available for the financial year 2015-2016. The intention is to allow the BAC to promote research activity within Cytopathology by providing some “pump-priming” type support to small, short term specific research studies, which are not otherwise funded, with a particular emphasis on producing direct clinical and social care impact.
19 August 2015The CEC is ongoing, with up to date details as below. If you have any queries contact Jenny Davies at Jenny.Davies@cmft.nhs.uk.

11 November 2013This one day meeting had over 100 delegates, and covered a range of both Gyanecological and non-gynaecological cytology, with workshops and an interactive component! Some of the talks will be available below, and are viewable by accessing with your BAC log on. The meeting programme and the posters submitted are shown below and are accessible without loging on.
7 July 2013The BAC is keen to recruit new members, and to better represent cytology within the UK. To help with this we have developed a society advertising flyer for use at meetings, training schools, local groups etc to help promote and raise awareness of the BAC. This two sided file is attached below to download and distribute.
25 March 2013The above meeting was a great success and well received by all those who attended! Over 100 delegates were kept abreast of developments in this area, and the first session had a major cytology component. The meeting schedule, abstracts and speaker presentations can all be found via the link below.
31 January 2013The website is intended to be used as a resource for education and learning for BAC members. Cases which can be used for this will be added over time, and members will be encouraged to submit cases for sharing. If you are interested in using this resource, want to submit a case or have a comment please contact us at the usual email address! Members will need to log in to gain access to these cases.
24 November 2012Over the Spring/early Summer of 2012 the BAC undertook its first survey, about cytology practices in general. The summary results of this are available to members - log in to view. The survey will be the first of many, and will help the BAC to better understand cytology as it is practiced today, and help the BAC to represent and advance cytology as a discipline. A brief summary of this survey was discussed at the BAC ASM held in September 2012 at Keele.
28 October 2012The talks and abstracts from the recent succesful BAC ASM are now available as a BAC member to view. The talks are being added as I type - not all talks are able to be uploaded due to speaker requests, but the available ones are being uploaded. Also available are some pictures to remind us of the very successful meeting - if you have any you would like to share to other BAC members then please email them to us at the usual BAC email address. Just log into the member's only area using your BAC number and your email address.
