The National Health Laboratory Service receives international accolades.
The National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS) was awarded with an international award in ‘European Quality’ in the healthcare sphere category, in an award ceremony hosted by the Swiss Institute for Quality Standards (SIQS) and the Socrates Committee at Montreux Switzerland.
This award is in recognition of the safe and effective treatment methods, the highly professional medical staff and services quality in accordance to the European standards.

Winning this international award is an accolade for South Africa and serves as recognition of the NHLS and affirmation of the organisations’ position as a leader in pathology and diagnostic services.
