Haematology Referrals

All patients must be referred to an individual Haematologist. Please fax referrals to 02 87385176 or email to liv.haemconsulting@sswahs.nsw.gov.au. To assist in triaging the patient appropriately, please include the relevant history, physical findings, medications and the copies of pathology, radiology and other reports.

The urgency and clinic allocation are determined by the referral letter. If you are concerned with the appointment time allocated to your patient, please phone the Haematology Office (02 8738 5167). We would strongly encourage direct telephone contact with the consultant if there are concerns about the patient.

There is also a Haematology Consultant and Registrar on service at all times and they are contactable via Liverpool Hospital switchboard during and after hours for urgent telephone consultation.

Haematology clinics are available in four locations (Liverpool Hospital (28 clinics per week), Bankstown Hospital (2 clinics per week), Campbelltown (1 clinic per week) and Bowral Hospitals (1 clinic every 2 weeks).
