Haematology

The Haematology service at the QE is provided by a team of four consultants, a specialist registrar and two specialist nurses.

The team offers care for patients with serious blood disorders including lymphoma, myeloma and leukaemia. We also see a wide range of general haematological conditions from anaemia to thrombosis.

We run daily clinics Monday to Thursday, seeing a mixture of new cases and follow up patients. Our inpatients are based on ward 12 and we offer specialist haematological advice throughout the hospital.

Outpatient chemotherapy treatment is provided on the chemotherapy day unit here at the QE. This unit has excellent staff and facilities. Patients requiring more complex inpatient chemotherapy treatment are transferred either to our unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital or to our colleagues over at the Freeman Hospital.

The Haematology consultants work closely with the laboratory staff in the hospital to ensure that blood tests are processed quickly and accurately. We provide telephone advice for GPs. We also work closely with the blood transfusion laboratory and transfusion nurse specialist to ensure safe transfusion practices across the QE.
