Haematology Lab Services
Who is the service for?
Samples for haematology laboratory investigations are received and processed from both General Practitioners within Primary Care and Consultant led in-patient and out-patient services within the hospitals at Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. Haematology supports both diagnosis and treatment in a wide range of disease of the blood and bone marrow including anaemia and leukaemia as well as supporting the general clinical management of patients.
