Phone: 020 7188 8462

Time: Tuesday, 9.30am to midday

This is a regional clinic for people with persistent GvHD after a donor stem cell transplant.

Treatment options may include extracorporeal photophoresis (ECP) or light therapy. This involves a nurse connecting you to a machine by a drip. Your blood then goes through the machine and some of the white blood cells are removed. These are then treated with a drug, which is activated by ultraviolet light to destroy the abnormal immune cells. The treated cells are then added back into your vein.

We assess your suitability for ECP at the clinic and monitor you when you receive it.

The ECP suite at the Cancer Centre has 6 chairs. It's open Monday to Friday and is able to treat up to 24 patients a day.

Key staff:

  • Fiona Child, consultant dermatologist and GvHD clinic lead
  • Helen McParland, consultant in oral medicine
  • Sukran Saglam, clinical nurse specialist
