National Coagulation Centre
The National Centre for Hereditary Coagulation Disorders (NCHCD) has now been moved to the new hospital building in St. James hospital as part of the building process for the new national Children’s hospital on the St. James campus. The new centre, now renamed as the National Coagulation Centre (NCC), is situated two floors directly above the Haemophilia and Hepatology (H&H) in-patient ward. The new purpose built unit will be the site for haemophilia out patient clinics and dental work. The impressive purpose built floor includes two well-appointed dental suites and spacious consultation rooms. The centre's proximity to the H&H ward should optimise all services and support for people with haemophilia and related bleeding disorders. Further updates and information will appear in the next I.H.S. magazine.

I.H.S Members Conference 2016

A huge thanks to everyone who attended and participated in the Members Conference this year at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sligo. The weekend was a huge success and proved entertaining and educational in equal measure for staff, members and kiddies! 

With many of the sessions facilitated by members, this conference highlighted the community spirit of the I.H.S., allowing members to share stories, experiences and most of all, understanding. A communication workshop, a debate on treatments, mindfulness and cookery all played a part, not forgetting the competitive quiz on Saturday night!
