From Rajeev:
"There is never a dull moment in Haematology; the main reasons are the patients that we care for and the colleagues that we work with. I am proud to be part of Auckland Oncology where everything we do is patient-centred. Thanks to the clinical research, options for patients are increasing as more and more targeted-treatments become available improving quality of life and life expectancy of patients with haematological disorders."
