The department runs Haematology Day Care and Clinic for sickle cell patients and other haemoglobinopathes; haematological malignancies and Consultants therein also collaborate with other departments to diagnose and treat oncology cases and HIV/AIDS and its complication. The department has the capacity to train Resident Doctors in Haematology, School of Medical Laboratory Scientists Students, and provide supports for post-graduate researches in relevant fields. More accurate haematological diagnosis is provided with the aid of of our recently purchased Flow Cytometer to identify cluster of differential antigens to support and strengthen morphological diagnosis. The department hosts a Sickle Cell Club which has been formally inaugurated and is a subgroup of the Sickle Cell Club of Nigeria. This is to help support our patients, morally, psychosocially and when possible financially.

We focus on the whole family.
