Paediatric haematology and oncology

The department comprises four paediatric oncology consultants (Dr Denise Williams, Dr James Nicholson, Dr Amos Burke and Dr Boo Messahel), one academic paediatric oncology consultant (Dr Matthew Murray), one paediatric haematology consultant (Dr Mike Gattens), one paediatric palliative care consultant (Dr Pat Sartori) and one associate specialist (Dr Anny Wong). They provide tertiary level services to the population of the East of England. The service operates a ‘hub and spoke’ model of care in association with 12 district general hospitals around the region.

The paediatric haematology and oncology team is truly multidisciplinary and requires vital inputs from many individuals to allow the delivery of high quality patient care as part of clinical research trials. This team includes specialist nurses, the research team (responsible for registration, data management and input, reporting of serious adverse events etc for clinical trials), allied healthcare professionals (physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, audiologists), teachers, CLIC Sargent social workers, counsellors and clerical staff.
