Guest panel - healthcare professionals
Dr Prem Mahendra, Consultant Haemato-Oncologist, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust
Dr Mahendra’s areas of clinical interests are care of patients with leukaemia, myeloma and lymphoma and those undergoing autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation. She set up the bone marrow transplant services in her hospital, which is now one of the largest bone marrow transplant centres in the UK, performing over 220 transplants per year.
She has a passionate desire to provide an excellent and prompt clinical service and instils this ethos in the several junior doctors who have trained and continue to train under her.
Barbara von Barsewisch, Haematology Clinical Nurse Specialist, North Middlesex University Hospital
Barbara has a particular interest in lymphomas and chronic leukaemias. She works with patients and their families from the time of diagnosis, through the treatment phase and beyond.
Barbara is particularly interested in helping all those affected to cope with, and integrate the emotional and physical impact of a cancer diagnosis. She guides patients through complicated treatment schedules, interpreting what is happening and what may be expected. By assessing their needs she is able to guide them along the often complicated paths of the health system.
