We provide an advanced diagnostic service and a comprehensive treatment programme for patients with different types of leukaemia. Our services are based at University College Hospital and the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre and include outpatient and/or inpatient based chemotherapy, a full range of supportive care including complementary therapies, and stem cell transplantation where clinically appropriate.

We have close academic links with the University College London Cancer Institute and the majority of our consultants are involved in research programmes there. Many of our patients are offered the opportunity to get involved in national or locally run clinical trials providing access to the latest treatments.
