The BAC is working with the Royal College of Radiologists to establish a collaborative national framework for ROSE across the UK
In order for the BAC to provide tailored ROSE training needs, they are seeking the views of IBMS members who work in cellular pathology to complete a short survey. Feedback will be used to help them understand how ROSE is currently utilised in the UK.
Current international and national publications and guidance support the requirement for ROSE services. In centres where ROSE is well established, significant efficiencies and improvements are seen in a variety of patient diagnostic pathways.
The BAC recognises the value of ROSE and is working with the Royal College of Radiologists to establish a collaborative national framework for training and implementation of ROSE services across the UK.
Implementation of ROSE not only benefits patients but provides exciting opportunities for expanding and developing roles for Biomedical Scientists in Cytology and Histology.
