Dr Nimish Shah

Consultant Haematologist


Specialises in

I am a Consultant Haematologist and Haemato-Oncologist with private practices based at Spire Norwich Hospital and Genesis Care, Newmarket. My clinical interest and expertise are in the management of Lymphoma, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) and assessment of abnormal blood results.

I graduated from University College Dublin, Ireland and completed general medical, academic and haematology training in Dublin, Essex and the South West of England. I was awarded a Master’s Degree (MD) in clinical trials and research on Mantle Cell Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma from the Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Plymouth.

I moved to Norwich in 2015 and have a busy NHS post at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital where I am responsible for leading the care of patients with Lymphoma, CLL and in patients requiring autologous stem cell transplant. I manage and oversee the largest CLL practice in Norfolk.

In addition to the clinical work, I am the lead for the East of England Haemato-oncology National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) clinical trials. I am also an active member of the UK National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) subgroups for Hodgkin’s and high-grade Lymphoma. I am very active in clinical trial research and am a principal investigator for numerous clinical trials in Lymphoma and CLL. I have been an author in multiple clinical and scientific papers, including senior authorship in national guidelines.

I am an enthusiastic and committed haematologist, who ensures that my patients get high quality, and compassionate care.
