There is a Day Unit with chemotherapy/blood transfusion chairs and associated treatment rooms. In modern practice the majority of patients will receive all their chemotherapy on an out patient basis. We pride ourselves on our good relationship with pharmacy and aim to minimise any treatment delays.
Because of the closeness of Solihull Hospital to the Heartlands Hospital we have no dedicated inpatient beds but haematology patients who do not require intensive treatment are sometimes admitted there by our physician colleaques and managed with our advice. We hold a weekly out-patient clinic.
Good Hope Hospital
This hospital has a designated Level I service for haematology which means that many treatments can be given usually on our Clinical Haematology Day Unit or occasionally as an in-patient on Ward 10. Only patients requiring more intensive treatment will need to be transferred.
Outpatient clinics are held at Good Hope Hospital together with outlying clinics at Lichfield and Tamworth. There is a dedicated Haematology Day Case Unit adjacent to our Outpatient Clinic in the Sheldon Block. This was completely re-furbished in late 2008.
