Dear Editor

Taking time to take stock of what is going well, and what needs a rethink is key at this time. We at RCPath, working with many other colleagues, including signatories of the letter above, have been through such a review, looking at testing within health services.

We garnered views and thinking about how things are being done and what needs to happen going forward. Our “Testing - A National Strategy” is the result, and is perhaps one model for a review report that is a constructive and helpful approach to the future. https://www.rcpath.org/uploads/assets/2e8d8771-f85a-408a-b5c8e68969cd21d...
