Conditions we treat
We provide a service for children with general haematological problems such as anaemia, neutropenia or thrombocytopenia, red cell disorders including haemolytic anaemias, aplastic anaemia and abnormal bruising or bleeding. We also offer haematological support and advice for children attending the Paediatric Liver Unit and those on the Neonatal and Paediatric Neurosurgical units who may also have blood disorders.
The team also looks after patients with sickle cell anaemia and other haemoglobin disorders (see Paediatric Sickle and Thalassaemia Service) and children being treated for malignancy (see Paediatric Oncology Shared Care Service).
