Easy Read Information

Clinical Laboratories are where we look at samples to help doctors decide what disease the patient has.


Who we are

Liverpool Clinical Laboratories (LCL) is the largest pathology service provider in Cheshire and Merseyside, formed from the amalgamation of the pathology clinical services and laboratories of the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust (RLBUHT). and Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (AUHT).

What we do

We work primarily on the diagnosis of disease but also evaluate the effectiveness of treatments and undertake research into the causes and cures of disease, processing over 5 million sample tests each year.

LCL provides specialist clinical laboratory services, regionally and nationally, meeting the needs of acute, primary and specialist healthcare providers. Our high quality clinical laboratories cover the three main disciplines of:

– Blood Sciences
– Infection and Immunity
– Cellular Pathology.

LCL has over 500 highly trained consultants, scientists and laboratory assistants, to provide the analysis
of samples and the clinical interpretation of results.

We work closely with staff, partners and suppliers and our aim is to be a centre for excellence in clinical
diagnostic and investigations services.
