Haematology (Blood) - Clinical & Laboratory
The haematology department provides a comprehensive clinical and laboratory haematology service for the county of Somerset. Outpatient clinics are run at Taunton and Yeovil hospitals. All categories of blood disorder are seen by the department including all malignant diseases of the blood and haemophilia. Inpatient beds for specialist haematology treatments, including high dose chemotherapy/stem cell transplants, are in ward 9, Musgrove Park Hospital.
There is a laboratory on both hospital sites with shared protocols and a common laboratory information system, part of Somerset Pathology Services. The laboratory carries out all levels of haematology specimen analysis including molecular testing in haematological oncology and haemostasis, specialist coagulation assays and HPLC for haemoglobin analysis.
