The Pathology Delivery Board is the successor to the Home Office Policy Advisory Board which was instituted in 1991 “to oversee the provision of forensic pathology services in England and Wales, to establish best practice for the speciality and to encourage the development of the profession through the training of practitioners and the support of academic departments and relevant research”. The board took over from its predecessor on 1 October 2005. The original constitution was approved by the Home Secretary on 15th February 2012.
