Consultancy and Scientific Advice

The laboratory is able to offer advice and consultancy for food, consumer goods and asbestos related issues.

The Scientific Services laboratories are managed by Public Analyst and Scientific Advisor Paul Hancock. Years of investment in equipment, and a focus on developing the laboratory as a centre of excellence, mean the laboratory now serves local government and private clients across the UK. We owe our success to our expert staff, who come form a range of disciplines - biology, geography, food science, occupational hygiene, chemistry and microbiology. Their skill, plus our quality systems development, auditing skills and environmental management make Worcestershire County Council Scientific Services a one stop shop for all scientific needs. The laboratory is also home to the Pollution Control Team.
