Primary referrals for suspected leukaemia
These should be made using the 2 week wait system. The haematology laboratory will usually have identified potential cases and informed the GP by telephone (acute myeloid leukaemia - refer for direct admission) or via a comment on the blood count report (chronic myeloid leukaemia - refer to a clinic).
Other primary referrals include:
unexplained anaemia, neutropenia or thrombocytopenia
Unspecified referrals are assessed by the department and allocated to the most appropriate clinic.
Secondary and tertiary referrals
Please address these using the contact information on the general haematology referrals page to:
Dr Robert Carr (for acute myeloid leukaemia and chronic lymphatic leukaemia)
Dr Deepti Radia (for chronic myeloid leukaemia)
Dr Kavita Raj (acute myeloid leukaemia and myelodysplasia)
