Report from the

CRY Centre for Cadiac Pathology (CRY CCP)

The average turnaround time for referrals at the CRY Centre for Cardiac Pathology during January, February and March 2009 have been well inside our target of 14 days. Each month we received ten referrals, an increase on numbers from this period last year, and each case was examined and completed in a short period of time. As well as clinical work Dr Sheppard organised a full day teaching session in cardiovascular pathology for first year trainees based at the Royal Brompton Hospital. In February she was invited to Mumbai, India, as a guest speaker for the Pathological Association of India meeting. In March Dr Sheppard was invited to be a guest speaker at the Northern Cardiac Network Meeting in Leeds.

Research In January, research generated by the CRY CCP was presented at the Annual Meeting of the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland in London. Abstracts were accepted for poster presentation (‘Setting up of a Pathology Laboratory to Investigate Sudden Cardiac Death. Results from the first year of CRY Centre for Cardiac Pathology’. Sofia V de Noronha, Kathrin Hault, Jemma Wells and Mary N Sheppard, Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, London, January 2009) and for an oral presentation (Non-Atherosclerotic Coronary Artery Pathology Responsible for Sudden Cardiac Death. What every pathologist should know’. Sharleen Hill, Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland, London, January 2009). In March, at the prestigious Annual General Meeting of the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) held in Boston, USA, the department had four abstracts accepted for poster presentations.
