“Excellence in compassionate care”
ST VINCENT'S PRIVATE HOSPITAL
I am accredited to admit patients to St Vincent’s Private Hospital under my care for a variety of inpatient therapies. These include some chemotherapy treatments and autologous bone marrow transplants. I also offer a haematology consultation service. This is available for any patient admitted to St Vincent’s Private Hospital who has a haematological problem and whose treating specialist requests my assistance to manage this condition. I am also available to assist other doctors to interpret abnormal laboratory results on their patients.
Laboratory services at St Vincent’s Private Hospital are provided by SydPath (St Vincent’s Pathology), which offers a full range of diagnostic tests important in haematology. These results are easily accessed by all treating specialists within the hospital. Patients also have access to a full range of radiology and other diagnostic services.
Treatment may involve chemotherapy, supportive therapies or autologous bone marrow transplant. I will discuss the options with you and obtain your consent prior to any chemotherapy or other procedure. I will also provide you with information about your treatment to read and share with those close to you. You will be offered a chemotherapy education session prior to your treatment, to help you understand what is involved. The ward at St Vincent’s Private Hospital where you will be cared for, is serviced by experienced nurses who are trained to give chemotherapy, blood products and other specialised medication. There is a doctor onsite at all times.
You will be well cared for.
