The Clinical Haematology service investigates and treats blood disorders, including leukaemia and lymphoma. For more than 25 years RMH has provided bone marrow transplantation (BMT) as a treatment option.
As partners in the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC), The Royal Melbourne Hospital, and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre are working together to deliver diagnosis, treatment and clinical research services across the Parkville Precinct for patients with blood cancer and other blood disorders. Through this partnership, we aim to provide the best in cancer care to our patients.
At RMH, inpatient care is provided on ward 7B (Haematology and Bone Marrow Transplant).
All day therapy services and treatments (outpatient chemotherapy, blood transfusions, bone marrow biopsies and post bone marrow transplant follow up) for patients with blood cancer and other blood disorders are provided by Peter Mac Day Therapy within the VCCC building.
We accept GP and specialist referrals for this service.
Referrals are triaged depending on priority. Emergency cases can present to the Emergency & Trauma Service at any time.
As part of The Parkville Integrated Haematology Service all Clinical Haematology & BMT referrals are processed by Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
