Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.
The haematology day unit is based on ward 11 and provides a comprehensive service for patients with a variety of blood related conditions.
It consists of 16 individual stations where patients receive their haematology treatment in a safe and comfortable setting.
The type of treatment that patients receive will depend upon their individual condition. Treatments include chemotherapy, blood products, other haematological treatments as well as investigative procedures to aid diagnosis of haematological conditions.
The bone marrow transplant unit is also based on ward 11 and is closely linked with the haematology day unit.
It is a four bedded area with en-suite facilities. This is a self-contained unit for autologous bone marrow transplants, patients are nursed on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis to ensure they receive the level of care required to progress through the transplant experience.
