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.

Our Introduction to the Multidisciplinary Haematology Team (PDF) booklet explores in more depth the responsibilities of the various roles.
We are aware that there are variances between roles in different organisations and have tried to focus on the core, common elements. If you would like to contribute further information about any of the roles, or submit information about any additional roles, please send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Filming took place during the second half of 2019 and the start of 2020, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
