[Histonet] Is Cytology in for big changes?

I have been following Mr Rogersons discussions of changes in pathology services in the United Kingdom.
I wonder if overall, cytology sections are in for the biggest changes, not histology sections, as yet.
Automated cytology screening instruments are becoming popular, (meaning less cytotechnologists required) and the advent of virus testing (HPV is it?) may reduce the need or eliminate GYN screening.
(I hope I don't start a big argument!)
