The diagnostic haematology clinics are designed to allow GPs and other clinicians to refer patients for investigation of a potential haematological disorder (not bleeding and thrombosis, which is seen in a separate clinic). This includes abnormalities in their full blood count or for a suspected haematological cancer, where we aim to see referrals within two weeks. 

We perform comprehensive blood testing, including blood film examination, immunophenotyping and molecular testing. Bone marrow and lymph node biopsy can be rapidly arranged and relevant diagnostic imaging (ultrasound, CT, PET-CT and MRI) booked.

Patients diagnosed with a haematological malignancy are supported by a clinical nurse specialist and transferred internally to a specialist clinic. There is also a Macmillan Advice Centre within the outpatient building which provides support and advice to patients and relatives on cancer-related conditions.

Patient after-care is dependent on nature of the condition. Some patients will be discharged with an opinion and may be suitable to be managed in the community by their GP. Some will require ongoing hospital visits, and in this case are generally moved to a specialist haematology clinic.
