The post holder will provide advice on the management of patients with complex transfusion needs with haemoglobinopathy and participate actively in clinical governance, including participation in national, regional and local audits, incident investigation and management and quality improvement initiatives in transfusion medicine. For Barts NHS Trust work, the post is based predominantly at the Royal London Hospital but may at times be required to provide services at other Bart’s health sites.

NHSBT was established as a Special Health Authority for England and Wales in October 2005 by the merger of UK Transplant (UKT) with the National Blood Authority (NBA) – made up of the National Blood Service (NBS) and the Bio Products Laboratory (BPL). The remit of NHSBT is to provide a reliable efficient supply of blood, organs and associated services to the NHS. BPL has subsequently left NHSBT to form an independent organisation.
