Haematologist

 

Professor Andrew Grigg is a clinical haematologist consulting at Eastern Haematology Oncology Group. He has been the Director of Clinical Haematology at the Austin Hospital since 2010.

Andrew is an experienced haematologist with a broad interest across the spectrum of haematological disorders, both benign and malignant. In addition to 20 years of service at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, he has also been involved as an investigator in a number of national studies in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).

He has recently established a new allogeneic bone marrow transplant program at the Austin and currently directs a special interest group in lymphoma and active research programme in immunotherapy for haematological malignancies.

Whilst Professor Grigg has a special interest in lymphoma and allogeneic transplant, he enjoys looking after all patients with haematological problems (often a welcome change from malignancy).

Private patients who require inpatient treatment or outpatient chemotherapy are generally treated at the Austin under his supervision and with the support of a multidisciplinary team. The Austin has a rapidly expanding programme in Clinical Haematology based at the Olivia Newton John Cancer Centre and offers a comprehensive service to all such patients.

If a patient needs to be seen urgently he can be contacted either at EHOG, through his PA at the Austin (Natalie on (03) 9496 5093) or emailed at andrew.grigg@austin.org.au.
