SHYPS is a newly formed pathology network that has been formed from two services operated by the York & Scarborough Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (YSTHFT) and Hull Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (HUTH). It is a clinically led service that incorporates a range of laboratory disciplines across 4 acute hospital sites and covers numerous community, specialist and primary care facilities across a wide geography.

The department in Hull Royal Infirmary operates a subspecialist system of reporting serviced by teams of consultants.

The department has successfully introduced an in-house molecular testing service to support lung cancer, colorectal cancer and melanoma diagnostic pathways and have a strong dissection team supporting all of the specialties.
