Haematology Specialist Services

Meet the team

Our haematology department is organised into disease-specific teams:

The clinical haematology service at the RVI is the base for the Regional Haemophilia Comprehensive Care Centre and Regional Specialist Haemoglobinopathy Service as well as providing liaison for paediatric haematology services based in the Great North Children’s Hospital.  Our service also runs general haematology clinics including new patient, obstetric haematology and thrombosis clinics.  The team frequently reviews patients at the Freeman Hospital where the main in patient haematology ward (ward 33) is based.  We also provide specialist advice to other clinical teams for patients who have developed haematological problems.  Our laboratory liaison service provides results for specialist bleeding disorder diagnoses, thrombosis patients, antenatal screening services, haemoglobinopathy services and haematology morphology diagnostics. 

The Northern England Haemato-oncology Diagnostics Service (NEHODS) is based at the RVI.  We provide integrated specialist haematology cancer diagnostics including bone marrow biopsy reports, cytogenetics and flow cytometry.

 

The team at the Northern Centre for Cancer care (NCCC), Freeman Hospital, focuses on the management of malignant haematological disorders. In addition to dedicated in patient wards, at the NCCC we perform stem cell collections, deliver chemotherapy and other supportive infusions and have a day unit to review patients.
