Who is the service for

You should attend the Rapid Access Haematology Service if you are worried about any of the below unexplained symptoms or if you have had an abnormal blood test result, such as anaemia or an abnormal blood count.

  • Sustained raised lymph glands – particularly in your neck, armpit or groin
  • Unexplained weight loss, sweating or fatigue
  • Unexplained bone pain
  • Unexplained bruising or unusual bleeding

These symptoms can also be due to a range of other conditions which can be treated, and are not always cancer. Our specialist team will assess your symptoms, make a diagnosis and ensure you have the appropriate treatment for your condition.

About your appointment

Initial appointment

An in-person or telephone consultation will be booked for the same day or following day and any blood test or scans done either on the day of your consultation or within 48 hours of your initial telephone consultation.  These may include:

  • Comprehensive blood tests
  • Ultrasound scan with/without biopsy
  • PET/CT
  • CT
  • MRI
  • Bone marrow aspiration (performed onsite under local anaesthetic)


The results of your tests and scans will be available within 48 hours so if you need any further tests these can be arranged as quickly as possible.

What happens next

If your consultant diagnoses a non-cancerous condition, we’ll discuss a treatment plan for you at an appropriate facility.

If your consultant diagnoses cancer, our expert team will review your case and agree the appropriate blood cancer treatment for you. Your treatment will start within seven days.

Our haematology consultants

Your consultations, tests and any subsequent treatment will be led by one of our highly experienced consultant haematologists. If you receive a cancer diagnosis, your case will be reviewed by our haematology multidisciplinary team (MDT) consisting of expert consultants and healthcare professionals specialising in haematology and cancer who will work together to decide your best treatment option.
