The department has a team of haematologists who evaluate and treat patients with various conditions such as anaemia, leukaemia and lymphoma. The haematologists also care for patients with blood-clotting abnormalities and are responsible for ensuring that blood transfusions are safe and available when they are needed. Haematologists of Shekhar Hospital work in laboratories as well as with patients on the wards. They can be involved throughout the patient’s journey, from the first hospital visit, through laboratory diagnosis to treatment. Hundreds of thousands of blood tests are done every day.
