About me

Dr James Uprichard is a consultant haematologist with an interest in blood transfusion, anaemia, haemostasis, including inherited and acquired bleeding disorders, thrombosis and haemostatic disorders of pregnancy. As well as Cleveland Clinic London, he works at St George’s hospital in Tooting, London. St Georges’s is a major trauma centre so his work includes managing the acquired coagulopathy of trauma. He is the lead clinician for blood transfusion, including the management of patients who refuse blood transfusions

Dr Uprichard graduated in medicine from University College London in 1996. Subsequently he completed senior house officer posts at Hammersmith, the Royal Free and University College Hospitals. He then completed a PhD thesis in rare bleeding disorders before commencing registrar training in haematology in the North West Thames region.

Dr Uprichard was appointed as a clinical lecturer in haemostasis at Imperial College in 2007, during which time his research included the use of global tests of coagulation in pregnancy and in anticoagulation. After a year of clinical fellowship in the North Thames Haemophilia Network, he spent an elective in haemostasis at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, USA.

His current research interests include the use of anticoagulants and their reversal in thrombosis treatment, along with the use of novel blood components for major haemorrhage.

He was appointed as consultant haematologist to St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and honorary senior lecturer at St George's University of London in 2011.
