Clinical Haematology


Overview of the Service

Haematology involves the study of the morphology and physiology of blood to identify abnormalities within the different types of blood cells. Such tests are necessary to diagnosis different types of anaemia, leukaemia, haemoglobinopathies and other diseases of the blood. Haematology staff also study disorders of the blood coagulation system and monitor anticoagulant therapy.
