Some comments below:

" My question is, given that many histological
techniques are carried out on Non-Gynae specimens, could Non-Gynae sit
within Histology. It would divorce it from the 'Pap Factory' scenario
and could place it fairly and squarely where, in my opinion, it belongs.
Could Non-Gynae Cytology actually find its 'place in the sun' if it was
within the Histology Department of Cell Path? "

Having worked in a Private Gyne Cytology Lab as well as Hospital Cytology
Labs, I would miss screening the occasional General cytology smear or FNA.
It breaks up the monotony of many negative PAP smears. (Don't get me wrong,
I look forward to the day when there are no more CINs or CIS or other
