The Haematology & Blood Transfusion Department at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital provides a comprehensive service to the Bailiwick of Guernsey which includes the islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm. The Haematology Department processes approximately 56,000 full blood counts and 25,000 coagulation screens per annum. In addition the Haematology Department provides a Clinical outpatients service in partnership with the Heart of England NHS Trust.

The Blood Transfusion department performs blood grouping and antibody screening tests including emergency department, preoperative and antenatal patients. It provides blood, components and products for routine and emergency use, issuing approximately 2000 annually. In addition to the testing requirements of a routine blood transfusion laboratory, the department receives and processes whole blood and apheresis platelet donations from local donors. The stock is supplemented by imports from the UK where necessary.

The Biomedical Scientist in Haematology & Blood Transfusion participates in the provision of comprehensive, robust and cost effective diagnostic Haematology & Blood Transfusion services on behalf of the Health and Social Care Committee, acting in accordance with Clinical Governance procedures. The Haematology & Blood Transfusion Departments interact with a wide range of stakeholders. The scientist will deal with multi-professional staff and the public. In addition they must be able to provide advice to clinicians and service users regarding technical aspects of Haematology & Blood Transfusion, with an awareness of the limitations of their experience. The role requires a graduate level of theoretical and practical knowledge of Haematology & Blood Transfusion. The post holder is required to contribute to the training and supervision of support and administrative staff within the IBMS training guidelines. In addition, working individually or as part of a small team, contribute to the development of new procedures and practices for specialist Haematology & Blood Transfusion investigations.

There is no resident Consultant Clinical Haematologist in the laboratory. All Biomedical Scientists working in the Haematology & Blood Transfusion Department must therefore work in a highly autonomous manner acting as the first line of response. Complex issues may then be referred to a senior Biomedical Scientist, the Heads of Haematology & Blood Transfusion or an off island Consultant if appropriate.

The Haematology Department uses the following platforms:
o Horiba Medical Pentra DX/DF
o Werfen TOP 300
o Ves-Matic 30 ESR processor

The Blood Transfusion Department uses the following platforms:
o IH-1000 Biorad grouping analyser
o Mirasol pathogen reduction equipment.
