In recent decades, few disorders have benefited more from scientific research than haemophilia. Those living with the condition have witnessed improved standards of care resulting in dramatic improvements in quality of life. The Katharine Dormandy Haemophilia Centre and Thrombosis Unit has made a proud contribution to this improvement in care.
