Clinical Haematology

‘It’s in our blood, is it in yours?’

The Clinical Haematology service based at Hammersmith Hospital offers nurses a unique and exciting opportunity to select a career pathway that will provide a wide range of malignant and non-malignant haematology experience working at the cutting edge of technological and therapeutic advancements in care. Nurses will have the opportunity to work in a leading specialist haematology centre, which runs one of the largest stem cell transplant (SCT) programmes in Europe, whilst also gaining experience in caring for patients with blood diseases such as leukaemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, sickle cell disease, aplastic anaemia, as well as, clotting disorders including haemophilia.

The haematology department operates innovative treatment pathways that include extended day care provision, day pain service, ambulatory care, apheresis and chemotherapy services, triage and assessment providing direct access to in-patient wards. Within this framework, nurses will have the opportunity to develop advanced skills in managing acute patients undergoing SCT that will include administration of stem cells, managing severe immunosuppression and neutropenic sepsis, developing essential skills in chemotherapy, symptom control and end of life care, as well as, being exposed to research and clinical trials. We embrace a collaborative and patient focused approach to care and take pride in developing and promoting a skilled nursing workforce

At the heart of service development in recent years has been the growth of in-patient capacity providing up to 56 beds across three dedicated wards and the expansion of Day Care services that includes launching a seven-day service, providing a nurse-led apheresis service, direct access to specialist triage and assessment facilities, and a dedicated Day Pain service for sickle cell patients. In addition we have developed a successful Ambulatory Care treatment pathway, which includes low-risk out-patient SCT treatment pathways. Within this framework, our nurses have the opportunity across the clinical areas to develop advanced skills in managing acute patients undergoing SCT that will include administration of stem cells, managing severe immunosuppression and neutropenic sepsis, developing essential skills in chemotherapy, symptom control including pain control and end of life care, as well as, having knowledge of research and clinical trials.

We embrace a collaborative and patient focused approach to care and take pride in developing and promoting a skilled nursing workforce. We have also increased the scope of Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) roles and introduced Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) into the team, as we continue to invest in the development of our nursing workforce.
