Bleeding disorder services

Poole Hospital offers open access haemophilia and bleeding disorder care for paediatric patients with known bleeding disorders. Children can be assessed and treated in Elmwood Ward or another paediatric ward if an acute bleed occurs.
Patients with haemophilia are seen in a combined paediatric haemophilia clinic which occurs every three months. The outpatient team include a consultant paediatrician, consultant haematologist, senior physiotherapist and nurse specialist.
Adult patients with a bleeding disorder who suffer a bleed and require inpatient treatment can be admitted to the emergency department, with close involvement from one of the consultant haematologists. Adult patients are also seen in a weekly haemostasis clinic that occurs every Thursday afternoon.
