UCLH is a centre of excellence in the management of patients with acute and chronic leukaemia. We provide an advanced diagnostic service and a comprehensive treatment programme for patients with different types of leukaemia. Our chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) service cares for patients who may only require monitoring, as well as those who require treatment, whether that is first-line treatment or those with relapsed CLL.

We have close academic links with University College London (UCL) 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. Find out more about joining clinical trials here.

Our CLL services are based at the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre and include outpatient-based chemotherapy and a full range of supportive care including complementary therapies. Patients requiring more intensive treatment may be cared for on the Ambulatory Care Unit or in University College Hospital (UCH).
