A quality assurance programme has two main aspects, namely, internal quality control and external quality assessment. A two year experience of quality assurance in haematology laboratory at B.P. Koirala Institute of Health Sciences, Nepal, is presented here. As a part of internal quality control, test results in the laboratory were scrutinized before release on a daily basis.
