Dr Andrew McQuillan welcomes you to the Virtual Blood Centre.


Hi, I’m Dr Andrew McQuillan, Clinical Haematologist and Medical Director of the Virtual Blood Centre. I have ten years experience in this area and work with a number of leading haematologists around Australia.

We aim to ensure the information on the Virtual Blood Centre is up to date, and more importantly is practical, useful and relevant to both treating medical professionals and patients suffering from haematological conditions.

Haematological conditions are common in the Australian population and if left to progress can have serious consequences. If diagnosed early, leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma can all be effectively treated and managed. Other conditions such as anaemia, clotting and bleeding disorders can be diagnosed and treated before they lead to problems.

Patients can use the Virtual Blood Centre to familiarise themselves with some of the common symptoms of these conditions, so they can care for themselves and loved ones, seeking advice from their health professional before the condition has progressed.

Professionals will also find the Virtual Blood Centre valuable to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field and to ensure efficient promotion of public health issues. That is why information like Virtual Blood Centre is important for holistic patient care across all disease areas.

Membership to the Virtual Medical Centre is free, and is available to both medical professionals and health consumers to allow for their different information needs.

As a medical professional you can gain access to our secure information provided for medical professionals. Members receive breaking news alerts, regular informative newsletters and medical professionals can request free posters and brochures for their waiting rooms.

Just click the Join Now button on this site and become a member of the Virtual Medical Centre and become a part of a group of professionals and health consumers accessing the latest medical information.

Thanks for your time and have a great day.
