What we do
We provide a high quality service for adults who have blood disorders.
We assess patients to provide diagnosis and also monitor ongoing haematological problems (blood abnormalities). We then provide treatment within a day case setting if appropriate or refer to another speciality.
We also monitor and adjust medication for people who are on oral anticoagulant drugs (blood thinners).
Who is it for?
This service is available for a diverse range of people including those with malignant and non malignant haematological conditions.
This includes monitoring warfarin therapy, administering support therapies such as blood transfusion, intravenous iron/ immunoglobulins and also intravenous, sub-cutaneous and oral chemotherapy.
Can anyone use this service?
People are seen following a referral to the haematology consultant by a hospital consultant, GP or specialist nurse
Monday to Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm
What to expect
On arrival, you will should book in at the haematology reception.
You will then be called into the treatment area to see a nurse and probably have blood tests. You will need to wait for the results which can take 35 to 40 minutes.
You will then see the consultant who will discuss your results, provide you with a provisional diagnosis and inform you of your treatment plan or a monitoring plan.
Some results are not available on the day – these will be discussed with you when they become available.
If you require further investigations we can either perform these on the same day or arrange follow up appointment.
