Experts in the field of haematology are focused on the diagnosis, treating, and management of a wide range of both benign and malignant disorders of the red and white blood cells, platelets and the coagulation system in adults and children. Haematologists may also provide research-based evidence which relies on laboratory studies that arise from the study of:
- blood cell and bone marrow morphology (shape and structure)
- genetic disorders that result in blood abnormalities (haemoglobinopathies)
- the process that causes bleeding to stop (haemostasis)
- blood clot formation (thrombosis)
- the transfer of blood or blood components from one person to another (transfusion medicine)
- cancers of the blood (malignant haematology)
Haematologists often provide services such as diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases relating to blood, provision of transfusion medicine, bone marrow transplantation, and analysis of blood tests. Haematologists may also split their time between a clinical ward and the laboratory, providing an expansive breadth of knowledge in relation to how blood is treated in medical facilities, as well as, how new scientific findings which may contribute more to the field by way of blood research.
Haematologists may be of great help to the legal process. They would be able to provide medical assessment of a patient’s blood sample, comment on the efficacy of prior blood tests and assessments, and comment on how certain chemicals or practices may affects one’s blood health. Experts in this area often come from a strong medical, or scientific, background and will often have experience in these fields to support their specialised knowledge.
The specific specialisation and background needed in your haematologist expert will be determined by the matter which requires examination.

Expertise in Action
Haemotologists would be able to provide expert evidence into the efficacy of blood tests. They could comment on the effectiveness of certain treatments, the accuracy of certain diagnoses, and the reliability of certain testing procedures. They would also be able to illuminate new and compelling forms of research which could assist in providing a different angle to blood-related evidence. They could also provide an assessment of best practice and industry standard procedures in assessing prior blood test results. This would assist in determination of neglect, malpractice, or a failure of duty to a medical or clinical capacity.
For some fields of expertise we have some sample sections of de-identified reports. Please contact our office if you are interested in a sample.
The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:
- The need for a view or inspection of a location
- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
