Strike action by junior doctors will take place at our hospital and community sites from 7am on Tuesday 11 April to 7am on Saturday 15 April. We'll contact you if you or your child’s appointment is affected. We apologise for any inconvenience.

A number of transport strikes are due to take place this March. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

South East London sickle cell and thalassaemia counselling services

We offer counselling to pregnant women and biological fathers who are carriers of sickle cell, thalssaemia and other unusual haemoglobin types.

We ensure that parents understand what their haemoglobin type means, and provide support to those whose baby may be born with a haemoglobin disorder such as sickle cell disease or beta thalassaemia major.

This service is available to all pregnant mothers who are carriers of an unusual haemoglobin type in Lambeth and Southwark. The service is also available to mothers receiving maternity care at hospitals in Lewisham and Greenwich.

How do I get an appointment?

Our service contacts all women who have screened positive for sickle cell, thalassaemia and other unusual haemoglobin types.
