Our team includes:

Who we treat
We see patients who may show signs of a blood-related condition. This includes:
- coagulation abnormalities, such as haemophilia and thrombophilia
What to expect
On your first visit, you'll have a consultation with a consultant haematologist in their private clinic. We'll likely run some blood tests and other diagnostic tests.
Once we've diagnosed your condition, your consultant will discuss a treatment plan with you.
- anticoagulation therapies
- blood transfusion
