Priya Patel

Laboratory/Operations Manager

I have worked at UK NEQAS for Microbiology for over 20 years, starting out as a Biomedical Scientist in the virology laboratory. Over that time, I have seen the introduction of many new EQA schemes, in particular our responsiveness to public health incidents such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud to say that we are amongst the leading providers of EQA in the UK and internationally with a long history of expertise and service delivery. I am responsible for looking at the operational elements of the department, which involves working across our scientific; operations; marketing; business and finance teams.
