Sickle cell and thalassaemia community service

Helping you to manage your illness 

We provide services for adults, young people and children with sickle cell disease and thalassaemia and their families.

Our team provides a specialist nursing service to the residents of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, who are at risk of having, or already have an unusual haemoglobin type. 

We also provide the same service to families and carers who are affected by sickle cell disease and thalassaemia.

We're based in the community, but when you have to visit the hospital, we will work closely with the hospital-based sickle cell service to make sure you receive the the best care. 

What is sickle cell disease and thalassaemia?

Sickle cell disease and thalassaemia are inherited disorders that affect haemoglobin - the substance in our blood that carries oxygen around our body.

People are affected by the disorders in different ways, but they can lead to life threatening complications. Please contact us if you would like to know more.
