Main Members / Directors:

Dr Peter Mason Atkinson established Atkinson Pathology Laboratory in 1993.Atkinson Pathology
Laboratory was born out of Dr Atkinson’s entrepreneurial zeal to set up a pathology laboratory
that will compete with the 2 main private laboratories in South Africa at the time. He wanted a
laboratory that will eliminate the bureaucratic bottlenecks that burdened the main private laboratories.
He worked for one of those laboratories as a business manager/business director for over 15 years
before resigning to start Atkinson Pathology Laboratory.

In January 2007, with the arrival of new shareholders, the laboratory went through a robust overhaul,
which included a rebranding phase and an operational re-engineering phase.Mr Francis Ike Igbo partnered
with Dr Peter Mason Atkinson in January 2007,a move that saw the company change from Atkinson Pathology
Laboratory to Target Pathology Laboratory.However, in 2013 the laboratory bought their own head office
building and had to move again in September 2013 from Parktown to Booysens. This move was necessary in
order to better accommodate their ever-growing staff complement.


Target Pathology Laboratories is now the trading arm of Dr P Atkinson and Partners (Practice No: 5202027).
Target Laboratory pursues excellence by being committed in serving the medical community in South Africa
and until recently Africa with quality results and careful attention to client needs and requests.


Consistency in growth, service and results delivery…
This is the attitude that we promote throughout our business.

Each word has value to it:


The leadership team of our company are consistent about delivering accurate results to doctors.
The aim is to rub off this consistency approach on the rest of our team, who need to show the same consistency
when working with our clients.


Increases in labor productivity have historically been the most important source of real growth.
Therefore to us it’s all about people. We believe that our team is key to the growth of the business.


This is achieved by a set of values and policies to be used to guide the design anddeployment
of services provided by our entire value chain with a view to offering a consistent service experience to
a specific client in a specific environment.


it ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to handle, more doubtful of
success and more dangerous to implement than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things,
We emphasize on the importance of flexibility and change for a better result delivery.


We do our work with intense enthusiasm and compelling desire excel.


 Our service delivery always strives to be ‘ahead of the game.


We consistently strive to instill honesty and strong moral principles into our staff.


We focus on being excellent in everything we do.
