Novartis’ Haematology Masterclass has historically been a two-day face-to-face meeting that aims to support healthcare professionals with a special interest in haematology to share the latest thinking and trial data within the field. By sharing this critical information, the meeting will help to support the implementation of best clinical practice with a focus on the future of patient care within some of the most challenging haematological disorders.

Due to COVID-19 and the current social distancing measures in the UK, Haematology Masterclass 2021 will be hosted virtually.

The event will run from 11th–12th February 2021. 


Haematology Masterclass has been running for the past six years and continues to deliver the most up-to-date and thought-provoking data in the field of haematology. Since 2014, the meeting has brought presentations from leading specialists in the UK and globally.
