Haemophilia

The haemostasis service involves the diagnosis and treatment of patients with bleeding disorders and is located within the Queen’s Centre at Castle Hill Hospital. The Consultant Haematologists are Dr D Allsup who cares for adults and Dr S Green who cares for paediatrics with bleeding disorders. The clinical nursing team consists of 1 part time CNS Phillipa Woods, 1 full time Senior Staff nurse Jeanette Fenwick and 2 part time senior staff nurses Katie Gladstone and Emilie Newman. Paediatric patients are seen at Hull Royal Infirmary by the above nursing team. We also have a specialist physiotherapist and a data manager. A joint haematology and obstetric clinic with Dr Durairaj (haematology consultant) and Dr Yeap (obstetrician) is held monthly to see patients with thrombocytopenia and managing pregnant patients with existing bleeding disorders.

The haemostasis service cares for both adults and children with various bleeding disorders. We provide patients with a wide range of inpatient, outpatient and community outreach care including responding to emergency episodes. Patients have access to genetic counselling, specialist laboratory testing and firm links to a specialist Comprehensive Care Centre for haemostasis in Sheffield. Patients are given a haemorrhagic status card which contains the appropriate telephone numbers needed to obtain advice, support and specialist information. They have access to this advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Severe haemophiliacs have access to a dedicated clinic ensuring all their needs are met.
