The Oncology and Haematology Department

Welcome to the Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Haematology and Oncology Department Webpage. We hope this webpage will provide you with information that you might find useful during your time with us.

The Oncology and Haematology department is a designated principal treatment centre (PTC) for the diagnosis and treatment of cancers in children and young people. 

We are one of the largest Children's Cancer Centres in the UK and see over 250 new patients every year, making us one of the busiest centres in the country. We have a large multidisciplinary team including doctors, nurses, health care assistants, ward clerks, nurse specialists, advanced nurse practitioners, physiotherapists, play therapists, dieticians, occupational therapists and other allied health professionals. You are likely to meet several of us during your child’s journey.

The department is also a specialist centre for the management of non-malignant haematological conditions and there are links within this page to direct you to further information.

This webpage does not contain information about individual types of cancer and their management. Your medical team will discuss this with you on an individual basis. If you would like to read some information then we would recommend the following websites:
