The Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Centre works very closely with the Community Haemoglobinopathy Nursing Team, the Birmingham Children’s Hospital Haemoglobinopathy Unit, the Voluntary Sector (OSCAR Birmingham, OSCAR Sandwell and the Sickle Cell Cares Wolverhampton) and our own hospital’s wider multi-disciplinary team.
We run joint endocrine clinics and joint orthopaedic clinics quarterly. We work closely with the leg ulcer nurses and the diabetes/endocrine nurses.
Apheresis is provided in conjunction with the National Blood Transfusion Service.
