Conditions and treatments (What we treat & cure)
Acute & Chronic Leukemias:
When you arrive in the outpatients department, please let the receptionist know you’ve arrived. A member of staff will be available if you need any help to check in. Once you have checked in, you will be directed to the area you need to wait in and then you will be called forward by a nurse or a doctor for your appointment.
Please consult with your physician and request a referral to the BMT Unit. Once you’ve been referred to us, you’ll be given a letter with all the details of your first hospital appointment, including date, time, location and where you need to go and when you need to arrive.
Please be on time for your appointment. If you are early you will not be seen more quickly, but if you are late other patients who arrived on time may be seen before you.
Schedule an Appointment
Please call the BMT Unit to schedule an appointment.
We will discuss next steps with you. If you need to come in for another appointment or be sent for tests. In some cases, we will be able to establish a treatment plan for you right away. Some patients who have all their diagnostic tests in one day and do not need treatment will be discharged to the care of their GP including your test results and any treatment plan we have put in place for you.
Before you leave
We encourage you to ask questions at your appointment. You and your healthcare professional will work together to make decisions about your care, so before you leave your appointment, make sure you understand the following:
What your diagnosis is, which treatment is best for you, whether you need any further tests, whether you need to book a follow up appointment at reception and what happens next.
If your doctor or nurse gives you a prescription you’ll be asked to collect this from the hospital pharmacy.
Booking a follow up appointment
If the healthcare professional you see asks you to book a follow up appointment, please ask to do this with the nurse before you leave.
