UH Bristol Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Service (UHB-HODS) was developed in 2009 in response to the recommendations from the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) Improving outcomes in Haematological Cancers (IOG) 2003 and the Carter Report which identified the increasing complexity of haematological diagnosis and need to centralise and integrate the diagnostic and reporting pathway for such patients. 
UHB-HODS serves the population in the catchment areas for UH Bristol and Weston and provides the diagnostic support for the Avon Haematology Unit at the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (BHOC) and Bone Marrow Transplant units at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC).
