The Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Unit is the largest paediatric BMT centre in the UK. We provide a comprehensive haematopoietic stem cell transplant service for children with life-threatening haematological, immunological, metabolic, rheumatological and gastroenterological conditions.
Only 20% of our patients have suitably matched family donors so many of our transplants are performed from volunteer adult bone marrow, peripheral blood stem cell or cord blood donations. The unit specialises in ‘reduced toxicity’ conditioning and in cellular therapies for treatment of viral complications post BMT. We are involved in cutting-edge research with the UCL Institute of Child Health focusing on gene therapy and immunotherapy.
Please be aware that private referrals for NHS eligible patients are not possible for this service. This is because children requiring a BMT will need continued and well-co-ordinated care, and good communication from the outset with their local paediatric services is essential. By entering the private treatment route, we are unable to provide the long term local support services required.
