Haematology

C4 (Georgina Unit) specialises in treating haematology patients with both benign and malignant diseases. There are 6 full time haematology consultants supported by a permanent specialty doctor  and registrars.  There are 4 full time clinical nurse specialists within the team. The unit has level III accreditation which enables us to perform apheresis and autologous stem cell transplants. It  is a 22 bedded unit with 6 positive pressure isolation rooms which have en-suite facilities. All beds in the inpatient unit have individual televisions that are free for patients to use throughout their stay.  The unit also has a day case compromising of 12 reclining chairs and 2 triage trolley spaces.  The triage service runs on the unit 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday- Friday where patients can be assessed and treated as needed. Out of these hours there is a 24 hour telephone advice line for patients. There is a home chemotherapy service available to haematology patients on selected treatments.

Within the unit there are outpatient clinics that run each day with 2 dedicated waiting rooms both with television screens and access to a free drinks machine. Within the POD waiting room there is a phlebotomy service each morning to ensure that patients can have urgent blood tests performed.
