Ward 33 provides acute and continuing care for patients undergoing investigations or treatment (eg. cytotoxic chemotherapy) for haematological (blood-related) disorders.

Ward 33 houses the regional centre for bone marrow transplantation (autologous and allegeneic) where we care for patients undergoing transplant, from induction therapy to completion as well as the regional centre for haemophilia.  Here we also have some input into aftercare including psycho-social support provided by our multi-disciplinary team approach.
