Haematology

We provide care for adult patients with a wide range of haematological conditions.

These include:

  • red cell disorders including sickle cell and thalassaemia (both out and inpatient services)
  • antenatal screening which includes genetic testing and counselling
  • haematological cancer
  • anticoagulation
  • thrombosis
  • transfusion

Making an appointment

Appointments and referrals can be made by you or your GP via The Electronic Referral Service (e-RS). You may also be referred by an internal hospital consultant.

Registered sickle cell patients can either be sent by GP or self refer to the drop-in service available on the Medical Day Unit.
