The Backbone of Cytology Training

With a principal catchment area stretching the length and breadth of the Pennine Way, the North of England Pathology and Screening Education Centre (NEPSEC) is the creation emerging from a successful unification of the former East Pennine Cytology Training Centre and the North West Cytology Training Centre.

Supported by a Strategic Partnership Agreement between Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHSFT and Central Manchester University Hospitals NHSFT and overseen by a Management Board, the training centre aims to become the backbone of cytology and cellular pathology training, creating and maintaining a centre of excellence.
