Haematology investigates the cellular components of blood and bone marrow mainly red cells, white cells and platelets. These various cell lines are counted by sophisticated analysers to help determine a patients condition or to monitor a pre existing one. The department also measures coagulation factors looking for conditions such as Haemophilia. Regular anticoagulant clinics are carried out to monitor patients on warfarin.
The transfusion department provides blood for routine and emergency surgery as well as dealing with trauma cases in A+E. This process involves performing a blood group on the patient and screening the patients plasma for irregular antibodies before matching them with a donor unit.
The laboratory is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Outpatient services are provided between 9AM-5PM Monday - Friday.
The Haematology department is based on the first floor of Appleton wing on the Warrington site and also operates a satellite laboratory on the Halton site.
Two Haematology clinics and three anticoagulant clinics are carried out in the out- patients department each week.
The Programme Investigation Unit provides a day ward for patients that need to be admitted for blood transfusion, platelet transfusion, chemotherapy, i.v. therapy, venesection and clotting factor replacement.
