Haematology

Haematology

We care for a range of conditions including specialised red cell disorders and haemato-oncology level 2 services, with the exception of haemophilia and bone marrow/peripheral blood transplantation (levels 3 and 4).

Inpatient services are based around 11 haematology inpatient beds and two haematology day care units. 11 outpatient clinics are held each week. Community, outreach and paediatric haematology services are also provided.

What we offer
The department is well recognised for its expertise in sickle cell disease and thalassaemia. Transition clinics for teenagers take place on the first Tuesday of every month. On  other Tuesdays there is an adult red cell clinic. There is a weekly evening clinic.

The George Marsh Centre for sickle cell and thalassemia, at St Ann’s Hospital, provides antenatal counselling for haemoglobinopathies. 

An outreach home care nursing team carries out 4,000 visits a year to patients with sickle cell disease.

Patients with haematological malignancies are seen in designated clinics for the diagnosis and management of leukaemia / myeloproliferative neoplasm (Dr Luckit), lymphoma (Dr Mohamedbhai) and myeloma (Dr Rabin). These patients are supported by a haemato-oncology clinical nurse specialist, as well as a part-time research nurse.

In addition there are clinics for patients with benign haematological disorders.
