Haematology Department

What we do

The unit provides a comprehensive service for haematology patients.  We diagnose and treat blood diseases, including malignancies, bleeding and thrombotic disorders, anaemias, haemoglobinopathies and haemolytic disorders.

The unit includes the national stem cell transplantation centre, specialising in autologous, sibling and unrelated allogeneic procedures for disorders, including the chronic and acute leukaemias, myeloma and lymphomas.

Appointment Instructions

When a new Out-patient appointment is made, the patient will be contacted with an appointment letter outlining the date, time and location of appointment.   All patients receive a reminder of their appointment by text message, if a mobile number has been provided.

If an urgent appointment is necessary, the patient will be contacted by phone by one of the liaison team

All return appointments are made at reception before the patient leaves the clinic.  Rescheduled or cancelled appointments can be arranged by phoning the Centre or the relevant secretary.

New referrals for Haematology clinics are accepted from internal referrals at St. James’s, G.P.s,  regional and national centres.
