The Newcastle upon Tyne Foundation Trust operates on 2 major hospital sites – the Freeman Hospital and the Royal Victoria Infirmary. It is an internationally renowned centre leading the way in innovative clinical care, including HSCT, and academic endeavour in immunological and haematological diseases in children and adolescents. In the last years it has played a major role in the discovery of new novel PIDs and has initiated “cutting edge” programmes improving outcomes after HSCT for PIO and developing the role of HSCT as a treatment for severe childhood auto-immunity. It is one of the largest European paediatric immunology HSCT Units. To date over 400 children have been transplanted for PIO, complex auto-immunity and JIA.

Professor Andy Gennery is the current Chairman of the Inborn Errors Working Party {IEWP} of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation {EBMT}, and through him, Newcastle plays a leading role internationally in the development of new understandings and greatly improved treatments for primary immunodeficiencies. We have close interactions with GOSH, EBMT, IEWP, ESID and PIDTC {Primary Immune Deficiency Treatment Consortium).
