The British Committee for Standards in Haematology


Welcome to the British Committee for Standards in Haematology.

BCSH provides up to date evidence based guidelines for both clinical and laboratory haematologists on the diagnosis and treatment of haematological disease. The guidelines are written according to the BCSH process by a team of expert Consultants and clinical scientists currently practicing in the UK. 

This organisation cannot give advice on individual patient management.

BCSH is a sub-committee of the British Society for Haematology. To find out more about the activities of the society and the benefits of joining please visit the main website.

BCSH CLL guidelines interim statement 2015

Issued: Jul 22, 2015
Considering the significant developments in the treatment of CLL in the last 18 months, the BCSH Guidelines group have asked the CLL Guidelines Panel to provide an interim update for the BCSH guidelines website. This interim statement has not been peer-reviewed, but it is anticipated that a definitive rewriting of the CLL Guidelines will be completed before the end of 2015.
