Haematology

Our haematologists specialise in diagnosing and treating cancers and conditions of the blood and blood-forming organs.

Overview

Our consultant haemotologists are experts in diagnosing and treating conditions of your blood and the organs that make and regulate your blood.

Haemotology is the medical specialty that deals with diseases affecting the blood, bone marrow, lymphatic system and immune system.

If you have a problem with your platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes, or spleen, you will be referred to a haematologist.

There are also many conditions and treatments that can affect blood and its components.

Bupa Cromwell Hospital has extensive diagnostic and treatment facilities for the management of these conditions including a dedicated haemato-oncology ward.

We also offer autologous stem cell transplant for patients requiring high-dose chemotherapy for haematology conditions.
