Haemophilia and haematology service

Treating babies and children with bleeding disorders and thrombosis

This service treats babies and children with bleeding disorders, thrombosis and other blood conditions. For information about getting or making a referral to this service see our referrals page.

Children’s haemophilia centre

The centre provides care for children with inherited bleeding disorders. It is the hub of the South London Paediatric Haemophilia Network with access to other specialist children's services.

We offer diagnosis, supported by specialist clinical and laboratory expertise.

Our clinical team includes specialist children's haemophilia nurses, physiotherapists and children's haematologists. The fully accredited laboratory is available round the clock and includes the specialist molecular genetics laboratory for haemostatic disorders.

Children with confirmed bleeding disorders are assessed and treated by a broad team working closely with community and school medical services.

Our specialist psychologist works with teenagers to ensure a seamless transition into the adult haemophilia service. The co-location of the child and adult haemophilia centres on the same hospital site allows us to support patients with inherited bleeding disorders from the womb through birth, childhood and adulthood.

Children’s thrombosis and general haematology

We care for babies and children with thrombosis jointly with other specialist teams.

Our anticoagulation service supports local children with the management of blood clotting conditions. It also provides an advisory service for those under the care of other local hospitals.

Our haematology team treats children with a wide range of general haematological disorders including idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), neutropenia and anaemia.
