A number of transport strikes are due to take place in November and December. 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.

Nurses' strike action will take place on 15 and 20 December. Our emergency and time critical services will be open. We'll let you know if your appointment is affected.

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.
