Your partner in sourcing Pathology tests

Our vision is to become the platform from which analytical referral services can be sourced, creating a simple process which allows you to confidently compare services.”


Pathaway is a consultancy, comparison and facilitation service for finding pathology test providers for the tests you need to refer. Our services range from sourcing a single test to facilitating total pathology referral solutions, while offering the flexibility of single or multi service provider provisions. Our focus is to enable our clients to effortlessly procure the services they require through our simple process.

Pathaway collaborates with a network of carefully selected UKAS accredited partners, from the leading organisations across the private and public sector. We enable our clients to easily find and compare referral services, while removing the inconvenience of identifying all vendors offering the services, then contacting them individually to confirm suitability and costs.

Through vast industry experience and knowledge, our team understands that sourcing the right referral service can be challenging. With the budgetary constraints on pathology departments, particularly in the public sector, we understand finding cost effective services has become a major priority. With Pathaway you can be confident that we will provide a comparison from a wide range of trusted providers, to ensure you find an efficient and competitive service that meets your requirements.

Our process



During the consultation process, we aim to identify your criteria for the service you require. Your preference of single or multi-provider solution.

The analytical test(s) required and their specifications, the projected numbers for each individual test over the next 12-month period.


Internal Audit

Pathaway will conduct an internal audit to evaluate your current processes, to outline if any cost saving measures can be introduced regarding postage and packaging solutions for referral tests.



Once the criteria have been established, Pathaway will contact all the providers in our network and source the service that best meets your requirements.
