About: Russells Hall Hospital / Clinical haematology

(as the patient),

Earlier this year I was diagnosed with ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura), a rare blood disorder where your immune system starts to destroy the platelets in your blood.

A blood sample was taken on a Monday, the next day I was seen by a consultant who explained that I had a very low platelet count. I was then given many further tests - blood samples, an X ray, a bone marrow sample, etc - and by Wednesday The diagnosis was made and treatment started.

My condition is now, hopefully, under control and I cannot speak too highly of the staff of the haematology department who have dealt with me. Admittedly, a lot of time is spent in waiting, but this is a small price to pay for such excellent service.

I have not found parking a problem, though probably it depends on the time of day of your appointment.
