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.

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.

You can search for a specific guideline or filter your results by publication date or by Task Force specialty areas: General Haematology, Haemato-Oncology, Haemostasis and Thrombosis, and Transfusion
