Paediatric haematology

What we do

We investigate and treat children with general blood (haematological) problems such as anaemia, or abnormal bruising or bleeding. We also support children who attend King's Paediatric Liver Unit and those on the Neonatal and Paediatric Neurosurgical units who may have blood problems.

In addition, our team looks after children with sickle cell anaemia and other haemoglobin (red blood cell) disorders and those being treated for cancer and leukaemia (blood cancer).
