Happy National Med Lab Week to all Laboratory Professionals across the world! Everyday we help millions of patients with their health by providing key, accurate information about what is happening inside their bodies. From diabetes to influenza to cancer screening to a blood transfusion - a lab professional worked on these results to allow for diagnosis.
Often the lab is forgotten until something goes wrong... and you probably don't want to think of us when things go right. Our role within healthcare is serious and often life changing for patients - we are the first to find leukaemia cells in a routine blood sample, put together a biological puzzle to identify tuberculosis, and identify high troponin levels signalling a heart attack. Without our work, doctors would be guessing!
Thank you to lab professionals everywhere for your hard work. I am happy to call you all colleagues and to make a difference in patients’ lives everyday. #laboratory #medlabtech #csmls #hematology #transfusion #healthcare #medlab #medicine #publichealth #nmlw2018 #chemistry #microbiology
