    It depends.

    You can work in haematology as a specialist biomedical scientist, by completing a BSc in biomedical science followed by MSc in haematology.

    Or

    If you want to be a doctor specialising in haematology - ask in the medicine subforum.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes my course leader did a biomed degree and is now a haematologist but in a hospital lab not in a on the wards.
    Like the above post said It depends what you want to do. There is a lot of haematology on a biomed course and lots of haematology labs so Im sure you will work out if you want to do it when you are on the course.

    You should be able to earn that much as a registered biomedical scientist in the NHS. It will increase when you complete your masters and specialise in immuno/haem.
