Haemophilia Scotland has heard that NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) are considering a proposal to relocate the Glasgow Haemophilia and Thrombosis Centre.
The Glasgow Centre is the largest of the two adult Comprehensive Care Centers in Scotland. As a result, any changes to its facilities could impact a large proportion of patients in the west and across Scotland.
Haemophilia Scotland has not been formally contacted about the proposed change. The proposal was discovered by the West of Scotland Haemophilia Group who made us aware. We have responded by writing to the CEO of NHSGGC, Jane Grant, to ask for the specifics of the proposal and to find out more about the process for consulting affected patients and groups.
The subject will also be discussed at the upcoming West of Scotland Haemophilia Group meeting, organised by Philip Dolan. The meeting is being held at the Glasgow Haemophilia Centre this Saturday (24th March) from 11am until 1pm. Mr Dolan has given us permission to publish a copy of his letter of invitation.
