I have extensive experience in management of Haematological disorders and supervision of Haematology laboratory and blood transfusion. I have been head of Haematology services at Medway Maritime Hospital since 1999, and have regular clinical sessions at King’s College Hospital. I have long experience in management of haematological malignancies, investigation of patients with anaemia or abnormal white cell and platelet disorders, and management of patients with thrombotic complications. I follow national guidelines in management of patients, and present them in regional multidisciplinary meetings. I carry out bone marrow examinations for diagnostic and follow up purposes, and arrange for chemotherapy delivery privately when indicated. I also carry out venesection procedure for management of polycythaemia or iron overload (hereditary haemochromatosis).
