Overview

Haemophilia and bleeding disorders

We are a haemophilia comprehensive care centre providing holistic inpatient and outpatient care for people over 16 years of age with inherited or acquired bleeding disorders.

We diagnose and treat:

We also manage related issues, such as joint problems, HIV and hepatitis, women’s health, pregnancy, and psychosocial issues in dedicated specialist clinics. We work closely with the haemophilia team at Evelina Children's Hospital for adolescents transitioning to adult care.

We are a hub for bleeding disorder services across south London and south east England. We provide clinical advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A walk-in service is available for our patients during normal working hours. We provide a full range of treatments for bleeding disorders.

We offer a home delivery service for patients on home treatment.

If you self-treat at home with regular or frequent factor concentrate (or emicizumab) you can use our home delivery service. The factor is delivered to your home.

We work with 2 delivery companies, Sciensus and Alcura.

If you're using the home delivery programme you need to record your clotting factor usage on the Haemtrack web app. The app allows you to record all treatments and bleeds as they happen. It lets the haemophilia team looking after you see up-to-date information to help monitor and improve your care. The information is also needed by NHS England to understand and plan national requirements for various factor products.
