IBMS President presents to MPs

IBMS President Allan Wilson gave evidence at a COVID-19 hearing to a select committee of MPs and Members of the Lords in October.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group focused on the government’s response to the pandemic and issues with NHS Test and Trace.

Following written evidence submitted by the IBMS, Allan Wilson presented evidence alongside Rachel Liebmann from the Royal College of Pathologists and later took questions from the panel. 

A video of the session is available to watch online.
