The role of the hematologist on call is to give advice/orders in urgent and emergent situations that need to be addressed immediately. The on-call physician will “hand-off” to the Manitoba Bleeding Disorders Program the following day for further follow-up.

A hematologist on call is available Monday to Friday, from 16:00 to 08:00. You can access a hematologist at anytime on weekends and holidays.
