Dr Jack Bartram

Consultant Paediatric Haematologist


Jack Bartram undertook Haematology training in London at Kings College Hospital, Hammersmith Hospital, St Mary’s Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. He undertook a PhD at University College Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital, then a leukaemia research fellowship at Hospital for Sick Children (“SickKids”) in Toronto. His research has focused on the use of advanced diagnostic techniques in leukaemia.

He has clinical interests in paediatric malignant and non-malignant haematology and leads on molecular diagnostics within the department. He is actively involved in research studies to predict outcomes for children with haematological malignancies.
