Janet Hayden talks about newly diagnosed MDS patients, symptoms of MDS, difficulty in managing the condition, drug treatments, and challenges faced by clinical staff - as well as awareness of MDS.
Janet Hayden is a Myeloid CNS and works with Professor Ghulam Mufti at King's. She specialises in Myeloid conditions. King's is privileged to have a dedicated CNS for many specialties - such as a Lymphoid CNS and a PNH CNS.
Janet is currently on adoption- maternity leave and her colleague Geke Ong is filling her role at King's.
Other hospitals will have a dedicated Haematology CNS available to help in a similar capacity to Janet and Geke (pronounced Reika).
