Our specialist consultants, nurses and support staff will care for you in the haematology department if you have a blood disorder.
We treat people who have:
- acute myeloid leukemia
- myelodysplastic syndrome
- immune thrombocytopenia
- acute lymphoblastic leukemia
We can offer you many treatments in our modern, comfortable day unit, which means you don’t need to stay overnight stay.
My personal experience while on the ward as an inpatient and outpatient during eight months of intensive treatment was continuously outstanding.
You will be referred to our department by your GP or other referring consultant.
