Ward 11 Singleton Hospital is a 25 bed haematology/oncology ward
This busy clinical area also houses the Haematology Day Unit and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. The inpatients are usually receiving continuous chemotherapy or are recovering from intensive treatments.
Over the last decade, due to both patient demand and improved Day Unit facilities, an increasing number of patients receive their chemotherapy or regular blood transfusion as an outpatient (see Phlebotomy Service) thus reducing the stress and associated problems of regular hospital visits. LLF funded the first two years of this project, which is now standard procedure at Singleton.
The haematology department strives to provide holistic care for patients with blood disorders, together with their families and loved ones, in a friendly and supportive environment. The department works to provide professional care for patients with acute, chronic and palliative diseases.
