What is Haematology and what we do?

Haematology is the study of blood and blood-forming tissues and the disorders associated with them. Haematology includes the study, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis and prevention of diseases of the blood, which affect the production of blood and its components, for example, blood cells and haemoglobin.

Our expert medical and nursing staff at the Lancashire Haematology Centre treat patients with a wide variety of blood conditions and specialise in treating haematological disorders particularly Acute Leukaemia and conditions such as Lymphoma and Myeloma requiring autologous Stem Cell Transplantation.

However, a significant proportion of our patients who attend appointments for investigations do not have cancer.

Further information about specific conditions treated is available from the Macmillan website.
