The department treats patients referred from across the North West and beyond for a wide range of haematological problems:

  • Haematological cancer (leukaemias, lymphoma and myeloma)
  • Stem cell transplantation (autologous and allogeneic)
  • Haemoglobinopathies - including a specialist Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Centre
  • Haemostasis and thrombosis - including a Haemophilia Comprehensive Care Centre and anticoagulant service
  • General haematology

Haematology inpatients are treated on Ward 44. There is a day unit for procedures and treatments such as transfusions, chemotherapy, and apheresis. Specialist clinics are held in the day unit.

The Haemophilia Centre offers clinics, day cases and a walk in service for patients with acute bleeding episodes.

Anticoagulant clinics are held daily.

All our services are supported by a multidisciplinary team including specialist nurses (haemophilia, bone marrow transplant, McMillan haematology, haemoglobinopathy), social worker, McMillan pharmacist and specialist laboratory staff.

Diagnostic work is undertaken by medical staff in conjunction with specialist scientific staff.

We participate actively in research, collaborating with local, national and international organisations.
