Ward 11

Ward 11 Singleton Hospital is a 25 bed haematology/oncology ward

This busy clinical area also houses the Haematology Day Unit and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. The inpatients are usually receiving continuous chemotherapy or are recovering from intensive treatments.

Over the last decade, due to both patient demand and improved Day Unit facilities, an increasing number of patients receive their chemotherapy or regular blood transfusion as an outpatient (see Phlebotomy Service) thus reducing the stress and associated problems of regular hospital visits.  LLF funded the first two years of this project, which is now standard procedure at Singleton.
 

The haematology department strives to provide holistic care for patients with blood disorders, together with their families and loved ones, in a friendly and supportive environment. The department works to provide professional care for patients with acute, chronic and palliative diseases.

The haematology department consists of 4 areas:
  • The Bone Marrow Transplant Unit (BMTU)
  • The Ward
  • The Haematology day unit
  • The Haemophilia Centre
 
The BMTU, the ward and the day unit are situated on ward 11. The haemophilia centre is located on the ground floor.

The ward units comprise:
 
  • Bone Marrow Transplant Unit and Clinic
  • Haematology Day Centre
  • Haemophilia Centre and specialist nurses
  • Blood Bank
  • Clinical Ward Meeting area
  • Palliative Care Team
