The Department of Haematology is based at Maidstone Hospital and Tunbridge Wells Hospital in Pembury and trains 1 FY2, 6 CTs and 2 ST3s. This includes extensive exposure to clinical general and malignant haematology, blood transfusion and coagulation. The feedback from Trainees is always positive, which many see as a unique experience not exposed to at any stage during University training. Our trainers are dedicated to deliver and our record of CTs applying for Haematology NTNs is exceptional.

  • Dedicated haematology BSH level 2 unit with filtered isolation rooms for intensive therapy and a team of specialist nurses
  • Care on the wards is overseen by the attending Consultant and executed by a multidisciplinary team with the junior staff at the centre headed by a SpR rotating from King’s College Hospital
  • Three Consultant led teaching ward rounds a week including a multidisciplinary grand round Weekly Journal Club for presentation of the latest research, guidelines and state of the art management of various haematological conditions with a junior rota for presentations
  • General and specialised lymphoid and myeloid outpatient clinics on both sites
  • Trainees rotate in a weekly fashion to attend as many clinics as they can with no other duties. This includes seeing, discussing and managing new patients as well as follow-ups
  • Audit involvement is encouraged which has historically resulted in some being presented in National meetings and changes in practices. Publications are also encouraged
