We have received an update from the Haemophilia Centre at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh.
“As part of the measures to manage the COVID-19 outbreak, there have been some changes to the clinical services provided by the Edinburgh Haemophilia Centre. We are reducing face-to-face appointments to the absolute minimum possible to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
All outpatient appointments are being reviewed by the medical team. Routine outpatient appointments will either be performed over the telephone or delayed until a later date. Urgent appointments will still go ahead, but there may be changes to the dates of appointments as clinics are restructured. You will be informed of the plans for your upcoming appointments by telephone prior to the day of the appointment.
We are still open for emergency reviews but we would appreciate it if you could contact the centre in advance by telephone on 0131 242 1270, rather than just turning up.
We are also still open for telephone queries, and would ask that you continue to contact us as usual regarding bleeding issues, upcoming surgical procedures or if you become pregnant.
Many thanks for your help and understanding regarding these changes.”
