Freedom of Information Request LIST OF PATHOLOGY PROVIDERS

Thank you for your request, dated 19 October 2012, for information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA).  I note that you have requested a list of all the pathologist services used by the Crown in the last 30 years or however long records go back.  I am sorry for the delay in responding to you.

Following a search of our paper and electronic records, I have established that the information you require on pathologist services used by the Crown prior to the year 2000 is not held by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.  It was held at one time but is no longer held. The timescales involved in retaining that information were in accordance with our standard records management procedures.

Information on pathology services used by COPFS since 2000 is detailed at Annex 1.
