Self-Management Project


The Haemophilia Scotland Self-Management Project aims to ensure that people affected by haemophilia and other rare bleeding disorders are fully supported in self-managing their condition, enabling you to develop an improved quality of life.

Outreach and Information provision

  • Exercise regimens established by a physiotherapist
  • Support purchasing any fitness equipment required to do the physio-endorsed exercise regimen. E.g. dumbbells, exercise mat, exercycle etc.
  • Pain management clinics and workshops with practical take-home activities and exercises to manage pain.
  • Opportunities to learn about pain and how you can conceptualise it.
  • Production of a pack of materials with information on healthy eating, exercise, mindfulness, dentistry, pain management, travel, school, career choices.


  • Attend the events.
  • Complete all monitoring and evaluation requests from us. This is essential.
  • Consult with your Centre about any exercise regimens established by the physiotherapist before you try any of their techniques.


You can be a champion! For each main health board area, we aim to equip a member as a point-of-contact to share what services and support are available in the area.
