Many Haematology patients are treated as day cases and the department has a very active day unit where patients are seen regularly for treatments including blood transfusions and chemotherapy.
The Day Unit has chemotherapy sessions every day and provides patients with treatments for a variety of Haematological disorders both malignant and non-malignant. They include acute myeloid leukaemia, acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, chronic leukaemia, myeloma, hodgkins and non-hodgkins disease. The department also performs high dose therapy with stem cell transplantation.
The Day Unit is on the ground floor of the main corridor, close to the Hospital Pharmacy. Patients can expect to attend the unit for between 30 minutes to eight hours for their appointment depending on the treatment they require.
