The Lancashire Haematology Centre, based at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals is situated on the North West coast of England, and receives referrals for all types of haematological conditions.
There are specialist diagnostic services and therapies available within the department, and we participate in an ever-increasing number of clinical trials, both national and international. The unit is a regional accredited referral centre for Stem Cell Transplants, with over 40 procedures being carried out each year.
Haematology inpatients are treated on Ward E, and there is a dedicated Haematology Day Unit for patients receiving treatments such as transfusions, chemotherapy and apheresis. The haematology clinics are held in the Macmillan Unit which has a large, comfortable waiting room with a tea bar and patient information area. Our staff work together as a multi-disciplinary team to provide the best care for all of our patients.
The department participates in the annual National Cancer Patient Experience Survey. Here are some of the comments from the 2022 report:
The treatment I received from start to finish has been brilliant!
My treatment right from the very start has been nothing but 100%. I would not have gotten any better if I’d have gone private. I can only thank them for everything they have done for me.
I received exceptional care and attention. Everything was always fully explained to me and nothing was too much trouble. I will be forever grateful for the chance to prolong my life. Thank you!!
The Quality of service provided by the Haematology Unit is excellent, and so is the quality of the staff and care, provided by the staff.
A far better experience than I thought it would be. Mainly due to your wonderful caring staff. They are a credit to their profession.
