Upon discharge from hospital, patients under the care of Haematology should be told to ring 364 0384 if they are unwell or febrile during normal clinic hours (which are 0800h – 1630h, Monday to Friday).
Outside these hours they should ring the Haematologist on call via the hospital switchboard. If appropriate, during normal working hours these patients will be directed to Haematology Outpatients where they will be seen by the Haematologist or a Haematology Registrar. If necessary, they will then be admitted to the BMTU if a bed is available. The Patient Flow Manager/Duty Manager will need to be contacted, whether they are admitted to the BMTU or to another ward.
