Haematology is practised by specialists who deal with the diagnosis, treatment and management of people with blood disorders, ranging from anaemia to blood cancer. UHK is currently developing and expanding the Haematology service for the people of Kerry who have previously had to travel to Cork for specialsit care.

Key Services

UHK has recently newly appointed a full time Consultant Haematologist, the first of two such posts to UHK.  The service is being developed to provide local care for [and refers to the South South West Hospital Group Tertiary Centre as appropriate] patients with general and malignant haematological disorders including leukaemia, myeloma and lymphoma and will be expanded throughout 2022 and 2023.

The Consultant Haematologist also provides governance and support to the UHK laboratory for the provision of Haematology and Blood Transfusion services, as well as inpatient consultations upon request.
