About the wards and staff

The Haemato-Oncology Team provide expert care and specialist treatment to babies, children and young people with a range of serious conditions related to blood disorders and cancer. Patients are cared for in an inpatient, day care and outpatient setting.

Inpatient and day care services are currently being delivered in Wards 6A and 4B in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH). The team will relocate back to Ward 2A/B in the adjacent Royal Hospital for Children (RHC) when the ongoing refurbishment programme is complete.

Outpatient care continues to be delivered in the main outpatient department within the RHC and there has been no change to this.

As a team, they aim to provide not only excellent standards of clinical treatment for every patient and their family but also that vital level of care and support that is so valuable to patients and families as they work through the physical, emotional and psychological challenges of what may be one of the most difficult periods in their lives.

Our team is made up of many different groups of people including; Nurses, Doctors, Pharmacists, Psychologists, Dietitians, Physiotherapists and Play Specialists, all working towards the common goal of supporting patients and families.

Our Estates and Facilities colleagues provide excellent support in ensuring our wards are cleaned and maintained to a high standard. Our dedicated catering support work hard at ensuring a range of nutritional options for children of all ages and will respond to individual requests where possible, recognising that appetites may come and go whilst children unwell and undergoing treatments.
