What to do if you have a bleed
If you are unsure if you have a bleed and need advice, or if you have a bleed and need to come to the centre for treatment, please contact the haemophilia nurses (if you have a bleed, please let us know you are coming by telephone in advance if possible):
Tel: 0121 371 4995 / 0121 371 4997
If you have an accident and are seriously unwell, you should go straight to the Emergency Department and show staff your bleeding disorders card to make them aware of your diagnosis. There is always a haematology doctor on call at QEHB who can advise on your care. If you have a non-urgent query which still requires review, you can contact the on-call haematology registrar via the switchboard:
Tel: 0121 371 2000
Please inform the doctor of your problem. You may be advised to attend the Acute Oncology Unit (AOU), located on Ward 622.
If you do not have a bleeding disorders card, please ask the team for one.
If you are admitted to another hospital then you should show staff your bleeding disorders card and ask that they contact the haemophilia team at QEHB as soon as possible. If needed, there are doctors available at all times who can be contacted through the hospital switchboard.
