Who we are
We are the East London Foundation Trust (Community Health Newham) Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Centre. We are a specialist nursing service serving the community in Newham.
What we do?
The Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Centre offers a specialist nursing service to children and adults who have been diagnosed with a major Haemoglobinopathy condition. The team is also part of the NHS England screening program: testing pregnant women and new-born babies to identify any unusual haemoglobin variants that may be present. We also screen anyone who may be interested in finding out their genotype. We work closely with hospitals, GPs and other Allied Health Professionals across London to offer the best quality care, including hosting Doppler clinics for affected children and an evening paediatric clinic to see children after school.
Who do we see?
All ages of anyone suspected or affected with Sickle Cell or Thalassaemia.
