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 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 treatment I received from start to finish has been brilliant”
We have recently recruited Navdeep Brar as a permanent Clinical Nurse Specialist. Nav was a Research Nurse at Lancashire Teaching Hospital, we are delighted she has come to join our team.
We also welcome back David Collett as our Ward Manager. David worked with us as a staff nurse previously and he has since worked as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Warrington.
