Myeloid Service

The Myeloid Service is based in the Cancer and Haematology Centre at the Churchill Hospital.

Patients with a new diagnosis of a Myeloid Disorder, such as:

  • Acute and Chronic Leukaemia
  • Myelodysplasia (MDS)
  • Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MPN)

will reach our service either through our Outpatient Department or by direct admission to the Haematology Ward.

Depending on the type and nature of the Myeloid Disorder, patients may need either inpatient treatment on the ward, or outpatient treatment in the Haematology Day Treatment Unit.

All patients receive the full support of our service and 'open door' access to our Triage Assessment Team.

Inpatients are reviewed at least once a day by the medical team. There is a consultant ward round twice a week on Monday mornings and Thursday mornings, starting at 8.30am.

Outpatients are seen regularly by the specialist registrar in the Day Treatment Unit, as well as having consultant reviews in the outpatient clinic.

All patients with a new diagnosis of a Myeloid Disorder are discussed at one of our weekly multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings and an individualised plan for treatment is agreed.

At key stages during treatment, each case is brought back to the MDT meeting so we can review how the Myeloid Disorder is responding to treatment.

A new diagnosis and the treatment it entails can be stressful: we want to provide you with all the support you need during this time. As well as discussing your diagnosis and treatment with you (and a relative or friend if you wish) we will give you written information to take away.


We may ask our patients if they would like to take part in a clinical trial. For more information please visit:
