The Haematology, Oncology and Palliative Care (HOPe) provides specialised care to patients with haematological disorders and cancer. Care is integrated with St. Luke’s Radiation Oncology Network and the Cancer Clinical Trials Programme and is supported by the Cancer Genetics and Psychological Medicine services.

The Directorate incorporates the National Centre for Adult Bone Marrow Transplantation and the National Centre for Hereditary Coagulation Disorders. Our aim is to provide holistic, thoughtful, sensitive, empathic and respectful care that sees the patient at the centre of all we do. Our service is supported by the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust, the Irish Cancer Society and Daffodil Centre.

The HOPe Directorate is comprised of the following departments:

  • Medical Oncology
  • Inpatient Radiotherapy
  • Haematology
  • National Adult Bone Marrow Transplant
  • National Centre for Hereditary Coagulation Disorders (Thrombosis/Haemostasis)
  • Specialist Palliative Care
  • Cancer Genetics
  • Oncology Psychological Medicine

Having worked in St. James’s for over 10 years, I am proud to be part of the HOPE nursing team looking after oncology and haematology patients. The Directorate provides a highly supported clinical learning environment
that offers fantastic educational opportunities. The diversity of services provides the opportunity to avail of numerous career pathways within the Directorate
