Dr Ferguson is a consultant Haematologist working at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS trust. He specialises in treating patients with both malignant blood cancers and those with general, benign blood disorders. He has a particular interest in treating patients with myeloid and lymphoid malignancies and bone marrow transplantation. Dr Ferguson is the lead clinician for Haematology and Acute Oncology within the trust. He is strongly patient focused and dedicated to delivering the best in patient care.
Dr Ferguson graduated in Medicine from the University of Birmingham having previously attained a first class honours degree in Biomedical Science and a PhD in cancer research with a focus on molecular biology.
His haematology training was principally based at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham. During this time he was appointed as an academic clinical lecturer and aligned clinical commitments with clinical research. His areas for research were the delivery of early phase clinical trials, bone marrow transplantation and basic scientific research into the genetics of acute myeloid leukaemia which he undertook at Oxford University and the University of Birmingham. He is an author on a number of high impact clinical research publications and has received a national award for his research.
Areas of interest
General benign haematological disorders; Myeloma; Lymphoma; Chronic Lymphocytic leukaemia; Myeloid disorders; Bone marrow transplantation; Bone marrow biopsy; Morphological analysis of blood and bone marrow; Patients aged 16 years and over
