Why see a Haematologist?

Haematologists play an essential role within the healthcare system, working closely with a variety of healthcare professionals to ensure that patients receive the best possible care. These specialists perform a wide range of laboratory tests and analyses, helping to produce and interpret results that assist clinical professionals in their diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. Additionally, haematologists support a wide range of hospital departments, including those working in emergency care, intensive care, operating theatres, special care baby units, and oncology.

One example of the valuable work performed by haematologists is the receipt and examination of blood samples from GP surgeries. These specialists carefully check the samples for any abnormalities, using advanced techniques to examine and interpret blood film and other data. If an abnormality is detected, haematologists can quickly assess the patient’s condition, explain any concerns to the patient or family members, and perform additional diagnostic procedures as needed, such as bone marrow biopsies. Because treatment may need to begin immediately in some cases, haematologists work quickly to provide a diagnosis and support ongoing care.

When Do You Need a Hematologist?

You may be referred to a haematologist by your primary care doctor if you have or might have:

  • Anemia, or low red blood cells
  • Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots)
  • Leukemia, lymphoma, or multiple myeloma (cancers in your bone marrow, lymph nodes, or white blood cells)
  • Sepsis, a dangerous reaction to an infection
  • Hemophilia, a genetic blood clotting disorder
  • Sickle cell disease, which involves faulty red blood cells

What kind of Tests and Procedures are there?

Full blood count.This common test helps your doctor diagnose or monitor your disease. Blood drawn from your vein or finger is checked for the levels and characteristics of all three types of blood cells, including platelets.

Prothrombin time test. This and a similar test called partial thromboplastin time look for bleeding or clotting disorders. They also check how well your medications and treatments are working.

Blood transfusion. It replaces blood you’ve lost in surgery, an accident, or an illness

Chemotherapy. This is given by a specialist called a hematologist-oncologist. It infuses your body with chemicals to kill fast-growing cancer cells.

Bone marrow transplant. Also called a stem cell transplant, it replaces diseased stem cells from the spongy center of your bone with healthy cells from other parts of your body or from a donor.

Do I need a referral to see a haematologist?

Most patients come with a referral from their doctor to see the haematologist. In this way, the doctor passes on useful information, and the haematologist updates the general practitioner with all their findings after the visit. However, If you don’t have a referral, 365 diagnostics can facilitate and if you want your GP to know the results this can be provided for.
