During the second half of 2019 and the start of 2020, we filmed a series of interviews with past presidents of BSH, each led by a trainee or junior haematologist. 

Learn about their career decisions, discover who or what inspired them to specialise in haematology and hear their thoughts on the advances in the specialty and the development of BSH.

We will be phasing the release of the interviews over the coming months, starting with Professor Victor Hoffbrand, President of BSH from 1989 – 90.

All the interviews were filmed prior to the Covid-19 pandemic and the associated restrictions.

The views expressed in the material filmed for the anniversary are those of the participants involved and do not necessarily represent the views of the British Society for Haematology.
