Haematology & Oncology

Haematology Clinic

Our Haematology & Oncology Department is the Principal Treatment Centre for children with cancer and leukaemia within South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Derbyshire.

We also treat children with other haematological problems such as bleeding disorders, inherited disorders of red cells such as Thalassaemia and Sickle Cell Disease and bone marrow failure syndromes.

We provide ongoing care for children and young people up to 19 years of age and accept new referrals up to the age of 16.

Ward 6 is our dedicated inpatient unit which has 14 beds and six isolation cubicles. These are mainly used for children who require protective isolation, for example after bone marrow transplantation.

There are also four day case beds allowing children to receive day case treatment on the ward.

Outpatient clinics are held in the PACT and Westfield Health Haematology and Oncology Centre which is on C Floor accessed via the Damer Street entrance.

We also work closely with the Radiotherapy team and Teenage and Young Adult cancer unit at Weston Park Hospital.
