We offer a day-treatment service for patients receiving blood transfusions and Intravenous medication.

Blood transfusions are either two or three units over one or two days. We aim to offer same-week transfusions.

The IV infusions are for either three or five days of steroids. We aim to offer treatment within a fortnight of referral.

IV antibiotics are offered daily as required.
