Faecal Immunochemical Testing – Past, Present and Future
At the ACB UKMedLab22 Scientific Meeting, held at the Royal College of Pathologists in London in November 2022, Judith Strachan was presented with the prestigious Foundation Award. This accolade recognises her services to Clinical Biochemistry and, in particular, her work with the Scottish Bowel Screening Programme (SBoSP). In her plenary speech, “FIT for the Future (Past and Present too!)”, Judith discussed the changing demands on the laboratory, based on her experience working at NHS Tayside.
Judith Strachan is a consultant clinical scientist at NHS Tayside and is also honorary senior lecturer at the University of Dundee. She has worked in the laboratory at NHS Tayside since 1990, and in that time has been instrumental in developing the services offered, to ensure the laboratory meets the ever-changing demands of the NHS.
