Haemophilia services

The Royal Free became the haemophilia hub for north London in April 2012 and is a large comprehensive provider of care for inherited and acquired bleeding and clotting disorders.

The Katharine Dormandy haemophilia centre and thrombosis unit provides comprehensive haemophilia care and the excellence of our services and the quality of our research is widely recognised. Pioneering research being undertaken at the centre has the potential to cure haemophilia.

The service includes clinics for the diagnosis and the management of bleeding disorders. Patients with severe life-long bleeding disorders have specialist needs and are able to access other services across different disciplines.

Our award-winning clinicians include Nicholas Goddard, who was awarded The Henri Horoszowski Award at the World Federation of Haemophilia (WFH) congress in Paris in 2012 for a paper he co-authored which could help to change the way haemophilia patients are treated after undergoing a total knee replacement. Two former directors of the Katharine Dormandy haemophilia centre were also recognised at the awards ceremony. Professor Edward Tuddenham, who retired in 2011, was presented with The Henri Chaigneau Prize by the French Haemophilia Society Association Française des Hémophiles for his work on gene therapy and Professor Christine Lee, who was director of the centre from 1991 to 2005, was given the WFH international lifetime achievement award.
