Congress 2022 has come to an end. Sonic Healthcare UK ended the event on a high, with multiple staff members speaking in the programme and other staff presenting their research posters.

Head of Learning and Development, Wendy Leversuch, teamed up with an old colleague, Vikki Moyse, to discuss the evolving workforce in molecular pathology and the challenges around developing and supporting an education and training pathway.
