EQA

Yorkshire General Histopathology EQA Scheme


The scheme is open to Histopathologists at Consultant, Staff Grade and Associate Specialist Grade who report general surgical histopathology independently.

Specialist Trainees are also encouraged to participate in the EQA for educational purposes.

The scheme consists of two circulations per annum, one in the Spring, usually February-March, and one in the Autumn, usually September-October. Each circulation comprises ten H&E stained histology sections, which have been submitted by the participants and deemed suitable for EQA by the Organising Committee.

The scheme is CPA accredited and receives periodic inspection visits to retain accreditation.

Initial Results

Once the EQA circulation is closed the submitted diagnoses are collated to produce the initial range of diagnoses for each case in the EQA. The initial results of the EQA are discussed at the participants meeting prior to the production of the final EQA results.
