The service is for children, young people and adults who are affected with haemoglobinopathy disorders such as sickle cell disease or beta thalassaemia. Affected patients should have a Dudley GP.
Our service helps:
- Babies or children found to be carriers of the unusual haemoglobins either from the newborn screening programme or from a blood test result. Patients should have a Dudley GP.
- Pregnant women or at risk couples found to be carriers of the unusual haemoglobin from the antenatal screening programme. Pregnant women and father of the babies are referred by Russell’s Hall Hospital antenatal department. These patients do not necessarily have Dudley GP.
The service screens, counsels, supports and educates individuals with a haemoglobinopathy disorder or who are carriers of the unusual haemoglobins.
Referrals are taken from GPs, school, agencies and acute hospitals. Patients can also self-refer.
