The service is based at the Royal Liverpool Site, but provides care both in hospital and community settings.

More information

Referrals from Primary Care

Referrals from colleagues in primary care must be sent through the Haematology Referral Assessment Service (RAS) available on the NHS E-Referrals System. Referrals will be triaged by a clinical member of the team, and allocated to an appropriate clinic. As a patient, you will then be contacted with an offer of an appointment following this.

In some circumstances, we will contact you to have further investigations (such as blood tests) following the referral. In these circumstances the patient may be discharged with advice or may be booked into a clinic for review.

Referrals from other Specialists

Referrals are received by letter from colleagues within the Trust or other providers (for example other Haematology Teams).  These referrals are reviewed by a clinician before allocating to the most appropriate clinic and an offer of an appointment being sent to you.
