Fit for the Future Summer Appeal
This summer we’re raising money for our work in support of specialist physiotherapy for everyone with a bleeding disorder.
We want to ensure specialist physiotherapy services are fit for the future, because your quality of life depends on it.
Physiotherapy helps people with a bleeding disorder achieve a healthy, active lifestyle which can reduce the risk of injury, pain and joint damage. Being more active can also boost confidence and is great for your mental health.
Although physiotherapy is a core service for people with haemophilia and other genetic bleeding disorders, a recent survey showed that 59% of Comprehensive Care Centres have an ‘inadequate’ service. This is not good enough.
Help us continue to push for better standards of care.
At the Haemophilia Society we work with individual centres, specialist physiotherapists, government and leadership organisations, such as NHS England, to improve this crucial service.
We also offer support and advice to our members about the importance of physio and how to access it.
Everyone with a genetic bleeding disorder should have access to specialist physiotherapy services. With your support, we will work to make that a reality.
