Roche Diagnostics has opened a new training laboratory and regional centre of excellence at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in the UK.

The facility will provide training for more than 1,000 hospital and laboratory staff a year from across the North West.

Part of Liverpool Clinical Laboratories, the centre was redeveloped following a grant from Roche Diagnostics, as part of its ongoing commitment to training and excellence in diagnostics.

"Ensuring doctors have access to accurate test results is an essential component of delivering the highest quality care for our patients."

At the centre, staff will be trained on how to use the latest diagnostic innovations and technologies at point of care within the hospital.

Liverpool Clinical Laboratories chief operating officer Jane Mills said: "It is often the unsung hero of medicine but up to 70% of clinical decision-making is based on diagnostic testing.

"Ensuring doctors have access to accurate test results is an essential component of delivering the highest quality care for our patients."
