With a goal to ‘uncover answers that matter by pursuing innovation possibilities’, NSW Health Pathology is committed to seeking out and taking on challenges that meet the changing needs of our customers, partners and communities. 

But how do we do this? 

Through putting people at the centre of what we do (Caring), listening and learning (Connecting) and through having the courage to discover new and better services (Pioneering).

So, we have opened the doors to ‘IdeaLAB’ … our online platform for your ideas to be heard on things that matter to our communities.

We want your input! 

You might suggest big picture changes that make a huge impact, or small tweaks that makes a big improvement to the way we work.  We want to hear & learn, from you.

The most engaging ideas are put to our Innovation Portfolio Leaders and Executive Directors for sponsorship.  

What does our success look like?

  • Improved patient and community outcomes through increased number of staff-led innovations translated into timely actions.
  • Public recognition as leaders in your fields, we will have more people recipients of awards and publications in health, justice and other government industry programs.


There's loads on offer and you can get the recognition you deserve, so come inside and let your idea take flight
