Dr Anna Cowley, Consultant Haematologist said: “I am delighted to join a dynamic, cohesive and forward looking Haematology team here at East Sussex Healthcare. I have only been at the hospital for a few weeks but my first impression is of a well-run hospital and friendly place to work.”

A haematologist is a medical professional who specialises in diagnosing, treating and managing diseases of the blood including leukaemia, lymphoma and other blood cancers along with blood-producing organs (the bone marrow, spleen and lymphoid tissues). Haematologists also specialise in transfusion medicine, and in the effect that other diseases have on the blood.
