Meet the Team – Hayley Pincott

Hayley (she/her) is an Associate Practitioner in Oral Pathology and Microbiology at the University Dental Hospital in Cardiff. Her role is to prepare slides from biopsies for a specialist doctor called a pathologist to look at under the microscope and make a diagnosis so patients can get the correct treatment. 

Hayley has worked within Biomedical Science laboratories, found within pathology departments, in the NHS for around 20 years. She has also worked in various different disciplines including Blood Bank, Haematology and Antenatal Screening Wales. 

Hayley didn’t follow the traditional educational route, but has worked her way up into her current role, and has found that completing courses whilst working has helped her to maintain a healthy work life balance.
