If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

South East London Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Centre, Community sickle cell disease and thalassaemia nursing service

We provide services for adults, young people and children with sickle cell disease and thalassaemia and their families.

Our team provides a specialist nursing service to the residents of Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, who are at risk of having, or already have an unusual haemoglobin type. 

We also provide the same service to families and carers who are affected by sickle cell disease and thalassaemia.

We're based in the community, but when you have to visit the hospital, we will work closely with the hospital-based sickle cell service to make sure you receive the the best care. 

What is sickle cell disease and thalassaemia?

Sickle cell disease and thalassaemia are inherited disorders that affect haemoglobin - the substance in our blood that carries oxygen around our body.

People are affected by the disorders in different ways, but they can lead to life threatening complications. Please contact us if you would like to know more.
