Chemical Pathology

Our chemical pathologists analyse chemicals in our body fluids and tissues to help diagnose and manage disease. They play a unique dual role of doctor-scientist, looking at changes in human body chemistry for screening, diagnosis, prognosis and management.


Our haematologists help diagnose and treat blood diseases and cancers.


Our immunologists help us better understand and treat diseases of the human immune system.


Every day, our NSW Health Pathology colleagues take part in innovative research to improve public health and safety.
