The Haematology service at St Vincent’s Private Hospital comprises a multidisciplinary team that delivers comprehensive care in both haematological malignancy, and non-malignant haematology.
The haematology team at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital includes three consultant haematologists who provide the very best care for our patients. Whilst all the consultants are happy to accept referrals from GPs, each consultants has their individual areas of expertise.
Our clinical nurse specialist plays a core role in the day to day scheduling and review of all haematology patients. She also serves as a point of contact for those patients who do not need admission into hospital, but require support when undergoing treatment as an outpatient.
Appointment and Referral information
Appointments are by referral from a GP or consultant only. For further information, please contact one of our consultant haematologists directly.
What is haematology?
Hematology is concerned with the study of the cause, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to blood. It involves treating diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, such as blood cells, hemoglobin, blood proteins, bone marrow, platelets, blood vessels, spleen, and the mechanism of coagulation.
Examples are the investigation of anaemias, leukaemias, coagulation abnormalities and blood borne infections such as malaria.
