My story

Dr Anna Wood - Consultant Haematologist and Associate Medical Director

My name is Dr Anna Wood and I am a Consultant Haematologist and Associate Medical Director at West Herts where I have worked since 2001.

“West Herts is genuinely a good, friendly, supportive and caring community of people which includes the consultants, nurses, junior doctors and a well integrated executive team...”

I started off as a Trainee registrar at West Herts and the consultant post became available at the right time. One of the reasons I chose to work here is because it provided the opportunity to practise the type of Haematology I enjoy.

Our haematology department is very diverse as we treat a wide range of blood disorders ranging from vitamin deficiencies to more complex and serious disorders such as lymphoma and leukaemia.

There are plentiful opportunities for career progression for all professionals at West Herts and there have been opportunities for me personally which I have taken advantage of. As a more senior clinician I have taken up a trust management post which allows me to work with a diverse group of clinicians and non- clinicians and to become involved in decision making regarding how we run our hospital and provide care for our patients.

I particularly enjoy the clinical side of the job, however, what I enjoy the most is treating patients.

As well as having the privilege of a stimulating job which I tremendously enjoy, West Herts is genuinely a good, friendly, supportive and caring community of people which includes the consultants, nurses, junior doctors and a well integrated executive team and that is why I am still here after 14 years.
