Before Treatment

Initial Consultation

Your care journey begins with a detailed consultation with one of our expert haematologists. This session is an opportunity to discuss your medical history, symptoms, and any concerns you may have. Our specialist will explain the diagnostic process, potential treatments, and what you can expect during your care journey with us.

Diagnostic Assessments

Accurate diagnosis is crucial in haematology. You may undergo a series of tests, including blood tests, bone marrow biopsies, and imaging studies, to determine the specific nature of your blood disorder. These assessments are vital for developing an effective, personalised treatment plan.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

Depending on your condition and the recommended treatment, specific instructions will be provided to prepare you for treatment. This may include dietary guidelines, medication adjustments, or other preparatory steps to ensure the best possible outcome from your treatment.

During Treatment

Our haematology treatments vary widely, depending on the condition being treated. Treatment options may include targeted therapy and supportive care to manage symptoms and improve your quality of life. Throughout your treatment, our team will be dedicated to ensuring your comfort and safety, providing you with the highest level of care.

After Treatment

Recovery and Monitoring

Post-treatment, our focus shifts to your recovery and monitoring your symptoms. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to assess your response to treatment and adjust your care plan as needed.

Long-term Care Plan

For many haematological conditions, long-term management may be necessary. We will work with you to develop a comprehensive care plan that may include ongoing treatment, lifestyle adjustments, and regular monitoring to manage your condition effectively and maintain your quality of life.
