Our Team

Central Coast Haematology is an expanding practice that serves the entire Central Coast region. With extensive experience in haematology and excellent support staff, we aim to provide high-quality patient-focused care. We currently have two haematologists, a haematology nurse practitioner and four secretaries who will gladly assist you with any concerns regarding your diagnosis. Kellie, Maddy, Denai and Sally are all efficient and empathetic members of the team who work with the medical staff in an administrative capacity. 

Central Coast Haematology works closely off-site with allied health staff, the haematology support teams at Gosford and Wyong hospitals and national support groups such as the Leukemia Foundation and Myeloma Support Group.
