Haematology Guidelines

The Guidelines are organised by clinical area (haemato-oncology, general haematology, haemostasis and thrombosis and blood transfusion) and by status (whether they are current, archived or works in progress).  They can be arranged either by date of publication OR alphabetically by 'topic' by clicking the arrows next to the column headings. The recommendations made by guidelines are reviewed regularly by the writing groups.  They are updated as required and will be rewritten if changes are needed.  Guidelines that are no longer valid will be archived.

Example:  to view all current haemostasis and thrombosis guidelines press the 'haemostasis and thrombosis' tab and the 'current' tab.  To view guidelines in production on blood transfusion, press the 'blood transfusion' and the 'works in progress' tab. 

Search:  The search function only works WITHIN THE PARAMETERS YOU HAVE SELECTED.  Therefore to search all clinical areas please ensure you have selected 'All' in the clinical area tabs.  Similarly if you want to search current, archived and works in progress, you must select 'ALL' from those options. 

Review :  Guidelines are reviewed every six months and are all current.

Date :  This is the year the guidelines were last updated.
