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 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.
