Formed in 2022, The British Society for Haematology (BSH) Laboratory Special Interest Group (SIG) incorporates both benign and malignant laboratory haematology. The SIG is comprised of BSH members and non-members who are a mix of medics and scientists.

The group will focus on general laboratory haematology, haematological malignancy diagnostics and the investigation of constitutional haematological disorders in the UK. These will continue to be a growth area over the next few decades, particularly with the advent of genomic and personalised medicine. Within the SIG, we will have separate sub-speciality workstreams to allow professionals to coalesce around areas of their particular interest, such as HMDS or red cell haematology.

These workstreams will operate and report through the SIG organising committee.
