Haematology Group

The Haematology Group has been in existence for over 20 years, growing from one person in 1982 to a team of ten today.

Now based at the Ingham Institute, the group provides Clinical and Laboratory Haematology Services for the South West Sydney LHD, a group of six hospitals serving a population of close to a million people and 3000 public hospital beds. The group supervises the Haematology Laboratories and Blood Banks, one of the busiest in the country.

All Haematological services are provided through the Tertiary referral service at Liverpool Hospital and provide outreach services at the other user hospitals in the group.

Most recently, a big focus area for the group is allogenic transplants, a transplant procedure which may cure a number of blood cancers and other serious diseases including leukaemias, some types of lymphomas, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes, aplastic anaemia and other rare bone marrow diseases. The group is currently funding an increasing volume of research and trials, staff and equipment in these areas.
