Dr Jo Horne

Advanced Practitioner Healthcare Scientist

University Hospital Southampton


I am an Advanced Practitioner Healthcare Scientist in Southampton, specialising in histological dissection and reporting, with a focus on gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary pathology. I am an HCPC registered Clinical Scientist and Biomedical Scientist and have recently completed the RCPath/IBMS gastrointestinal histopathology reporting diploma. This is a new UK-wide reporting qualification for Healthcare Scientists in Histopathology. I was the first candidate to pass the FRCPath equivalent level exam, enabling me to independently report gastrointestinal specimens. I am passionate about workforce transformation and Healthcare Scientist education and training. I am a member of the IBMS/RCPath conjoint boards for the histological dissection and reporting qualifications, and an examiner with the National School of Healthcare Science for the Scientist Training Programme.
