Camden and Islington Sickle Cell and Thalassemia Service

This is a shared service for Islington and Camden. The service is delivered from the Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia centre based in Holloway. The centre provides dynamic, integrated, holistic services that place people with, or at risk of, sickle cell and thalassaemia at the centre of care; recognising and addressing the complex needs of individuals and families affected by these conditions.

The service is for:

  • Adults and children with any type of haemoglobin disorders such as sickle cell disease or thalassaemia
  • Antenatal women with abnormal haemoglobin who are routinely referred from the maternity departments at UCLH and the Whittington hospitals
  • New babies of Islington and Camden residents referred from the new born screening programme for sickle cell disease
  • Members of the public self-referring for information, blood testing or genetic counselling

Any health and social care professional, including GPs, hospital doctors and social workers can refer patients by phoning or writing to the centre. The service also accepts self-referrals from any member of the public; carers, family members and individuals with or at risk of sickle cell and thalassaemia are accepted.
