Peer Review report on centres published today

Written by Aaron Dennis, May 29, 2020

Today sees the publication of the Overview Report of the Inherited and Acquired Haemophilia and other Bleeding Disorder Peer Review Programme.

The aim of the programme was to examine the care provided in haemophilia centres across the UK and measure them against the Quality Standards developed by the UK Haemophilia Centre Doctors’ Organisation (UKHCDO). In total 37 centres across the UK were visited by a multi-disciplinary team who had received specialist training for this review. All teams also included an expert patient.

The programme has highlighted areas of good practice that should be shared as well as things that are not in line with the Quality Standards and should be considered for change and in some cases cause concern or have identified risk. Any serious risks have been actioned immediately and resolved by the Trusts.

You can read the outcomes in the overview report here
