Bleeding disorder services

The Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester registers a small number of patients with bleeding disorders and a haemostasis clinic is run on alternate Fridays in the Fortuneswell unit.

If patients require admission to manage a bleed this is normally coordinated via the on call consultant haematologist. Children are admitted under the care of an on call consultant paediatrician with guidance regarding dosing of treatment and monitoring from the haematologist.
