London, city, capital of the United Kingdom. It is among the oldest of the world’s great cities- its history spanning nearly two millennia and one of the most cosmopolitan. By far Britain’s largest metropolis, it is also the country’s economic, transportation, and cultural centre.

Situated south of the River Thames, it consists of the boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Kingston, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Richmond (in part), Southwark, Sutton and Wandsworth. South London consists of 11 whole boroughs and part of the cross-river borough of Richmond Upon Thames.

Very little of London's underground rail network lies south of the river, improved underground provision in south London with the Crossrail 2 line proposed alongside extensions to the Northern and Bakerloo Lines. South London contains a very extensive over ground rail network and all of London's trams operate within the area.

The area to the south of the Thames is London's most underrated region, boasting stunning architecture, world-class art and culture (including a world heritage site), and a host of other attractions and sporting venues.

Found on the Thames' south bank, minutes from central London, are The Shard (London's tallest building), the Tate Modern (the country's leading modern art gallery), HMS Belfast (a museum ship moored on the Thames) and Shakespeare's Globe (a faithful reconstruction of the Bard's theatre).

Further afield you will find Maritime Greenwich, London's third World Heritage Site after the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament. There are a number of things to do here, including the National Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark, the Queen's House, Greenwich Park and Greenwich Royal Observatory (the home of Greenwich Mean Time), as well as a relaxed and convivial town atmosphere.


The Haematology department at the Hospital encompasses all clinical and laboratory aspects of the specialty. Services include a laboratory diagnostic haematological service, (providing services to South West London Pathology), a blood transfusion service which includes support for the Major Trauma Centre with helipad; an anticoagulant and thrombosis service (VTE exemplar site); a large haemophilia centre with; a haemostasis service; a BSH level 3 haematopoietic stem cell transplant unit with national and international reputation for the treatment of aplastic anaemia and other bone marrow failure disorders; an ITP service that is recognised as a centre of excellence; a tertiary referral paediatric haematology service; a haemoglobinopathy and iron disorder service; a large apheresis program with 24/7 cover and a large haemato-oncology service with specialist myeloma pathways for amyloidosis and spinal disease.

The unit has a national and international reputation for the treatment of aplastic anaemia and other bone marrow failure disorders. All BMT cases are routinely reported to EBMT and the Centre for International Blood and Marrow Transplantation (CIBMTR) and the unit is classified as a research centre by the CIBMTR.

The department has an extensive consulting role supporting other specialist tertiary services within the Trust. This recognised expertise within the haematology department has allowed the forging of shared care arrangements in areas including the clinical infection unit, neurology and neurosciences, obstetrics, the major trauma unit, orthopedics, heart failure and renal medicine and the renal transplant unit.
