MDS Specialists and Centres of Excellence (CoE) in UK/Ireland

The haematologists in the hospitals below are the MDS experts we recommend you consult for any type of MDS, at any time or any stage, but especially if you are seeking an additional opinion. These physicians have extensive experience treating MDS patients - and will work with your local haematologist to offer you the best possible care and advice.

All of these haematologists are part of the UK MDS Forum - the UK specialist group for MDS - and work extensively with other MDS experts worldwide.

In addition - some of these hospitals have obtained a Centre of Excellence (CoE) status, others have not yet applied for this status.

Under NHS rules, you are free to seek a referral to the hospital of your choice.

To get a referral: Please just ask your GP or your haematologist to refer you. You will receive an appointment in the post as soon as possible.

If you are unable or prefer not to travel to a conventional appointment Professor David Bowen and Leeds Teaching Hospitals  started a new service for patients: one to one video consultations online, read the full information here
