Welsh Laboratory Information Management System (WLIMS)

WLIMS is used by pathology staff for storing, recording and exchanging information such as blood test results.  

Cytology, microbiology, histology and blood sciences pathology laboratories across Wales are linked via WLMS.  

Lab results are sent electronically from WLIMS to GP practices and accessible in hospitals directly through the Welsh Clinical Portal, providing added safety by reducing the number of duplicate tests and improving clinical governance.

The system also links to the machines used in labs that conduct the tests and analyse the samples.
