East Kent’s Clinical Haematology department provides specialist diagnostic investigations and treatment for a wide range of blood, bone marrow and spleen disorders in a comfortable outpatient setting.  

Most of our Haematology Clinics are held in the Clinical Haematology department in Canterbury. We also have some clinics in Margate (Viking day Unit) and Ashford (Celia Blakey Centre). For information on what to expect during your appointment please view our 'What to Expect' page.

We work closely with the chemotherapy Units attached to each of the hospitals, and our in-patient treatments are given on Brabourne Ward at Kent and Canterbury Hospital

There are no accident and emergency facilities at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, so in urgent and emergency cases, patients are admitted and treated via the Emergency departments of the William Harvey Hospital and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital. There is always 24 hour advice available from the Haematology Consultant on-call and their team.

Some of the conditions we deal with include:

This is a central helpline for all patients who have come into contact with a Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialist or the Macmillan Acute Oncology Team. Not all people that are given this number have cancer, some maybe undergoing investigations to rule it out.

The people that answer your calls are not medically trained and in order for them to direct you to correct person/ team, they will ask for some clinical and personal information.

The Macmillan Clinical Nurse Specialists run designated phone clinics, therefore if appropriate you will be booked onto the next available telephone clinic which may not be the same day.

If the Cancer Care Line Co-ordinator's triage indicates you require urgent clinical advice, you will be put through to the specialist nurse of the day.
