Written by expert consultants and clinical scientists currently practising in the UK, the BSH Guidelines provide up-to-date evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of haematological diseases.

For those with slower machines or internet connections, please see our plain text version of the Guidelines listing.

You will find three styles of guideline:

BSH Guideline (previously known as BCSH Guidelines)
Evidence-based guideline developed following a professional literature search and a review of the evidence by the writing group.

BSH Good Practice Paper 
Used to recommend good practice in areas where there is a less robust evidence base but for which a degree of consensus or uniformity is likely to be beneficial to patient care.

BSH Position Paper 
The adoption and adaptation of a non-UK evidence-based guideline for use in the UK.
