Women with bleeding disorders
The haemophilia centre runs a multi disciplinary clinic for women with bleeding disorders. The clinic is run by haemophilia specialists, obstetricians and gynaecologists, haemophilia nurse specialists and family counsellors/therapists.
Referrals are accepted from GPs and other clinicians across the UK. Patients have direct access to this service.
Women Bleed Too, a website created in association with the haemophilia society to raise awareness and provide support, has more information on bleeding disorders.
All women admitted for surgery are seen in a pre-admissions clinic. If they are for day surgery they will be seen on the third floor in the day surgery unit. If they are for in-patient surgery, they will be seen in the main gynaecology out-patient clinic.
The Royal Free Hospital is a teaching hospital and has medical students attached to our teams. With the patient’s permission, medical students may be present during examinations if appropriate and may ask questions.
