The Macmillan Haematology Nursing Team
Our main role is to support and provide information to patients who have been diagnosed with a haematological cancer, along with their families and carers. We provide long-term support, from investigation through to diagnosis and treatment.
In addition, we support and advise patients with some general blood disorders, including low platelets or haemochromatosis.
We work as part of the haematology multi-disciplinary team (MDT), liaising closely with the haematology consultants and other healthcare professionals from Harrogate, York and Leeds. We also work with the staff based in the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre. All of our nurse specialists are supported by a care co-ordinator.
We see patients at the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, or, if appropriate, on the wards.
Patients are usually referred via and seen at the various outpatient clinics, but we also see patients who have been on the wards when required. We review patients in nurse-led clinics.
