Clinical Haematology at Queen Elizabeth

Clinical haematology is the diagnosis and management of a wide range of blood, bone marrow, lymph node and spleen disorders. This ranges from benign disorders through to haematological malignancies requiring chemotherapy.

Services are provided in the Macmillan Brook Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which combines a chemotherapy service with a blood transfusion service.


The Macmillan Brook Unit is located towards the west entrance of the main hospital site. The chemotherapy day unit is open 8.30am–6pm Monday to Friday. Ward 21 for inpatients has two beds for day patients eg those having blood transfusions.
