Our 60th anniversary is a time to recognise and raise awareness of the breadth of roles in the multidisciplinary haematology team and the contribution that each one makes to improving patient care.

The Full Blood Count (FBC) test – one of the most common medical laboratory tests – is just one example of how members of the team work together, as illustrated by our animation.

We would like to thank members of our Communications Committee, working in a variety of haematology roles, who created the vision for the animation.

Whilst our animation is based on the experience of BSH members working from a number of hospitals, it is illustrative and will not necessarily represent practice in all organisations. Over the coming months we will be exploring in more depth the responsibilities of each of the roles typically seen within the multidisciplinary haematology team.
