The Department of Clinical Laboratory has been founded at same time with Nepal Police Hospital on 2040 BS.

This department plays an essential role in medical field by providing conclusive diagnosis.  Pathology is a branch of medicine that involves the analysis of tissue, blood, urine, and other body fluids to find out what is wrong with a patient. It is a bridge between basic sciences and clinical medicine. Department of Clinical Laboratory has several units which includes hematology and clinical pathology, biochemistry, microbiology, cytology, histopathology and blood bank.

The department is participating in External Quality Assurance Scheme (EQAS) programs with National Public Health Laboratory (NPHL).


To be one of the best governmental hospital-based laboratory in Nepal. To improve patient care through quality laboratory testing and diagnostic results.


The Department of Clinical Laboratory seeks to provide a high quality analytical, interpretive, and advisory and consultancy service that is cost-effective and responsive to the needs of our patients and other users. It is committed to maintain a safe working environment, a highly skilled workforce and utilizing up to date technology to deliver the right result on the right specimen from the right patient that is accurate, properly interpreted and delivered within a clinically appropriate timescale.

Operating hours:

The department has 24 x7 hours functional hematology, biochemistry, serology,  parasitology and blood bank services.
