Treatment Room

A hemophilia/bleeding disorder treatment room will be set up for the duration of the Congress in the Scottish Event Campus (SEC), Room Alsh 1 - 2 in close proximity to the exhibition hall, plenary, and all session rooms.

Specialized physicians and nurses are available to assess emergency and semi-urgent situations related to your bleeding disorder and assist with infusions. Physiotherapists will be available in the same location at designated times, from May 21 to 25, to perform appropriate management and give advice to patients who are having an acute or sub-acute bleeding episode. Volunteers will assist delegates to get to the treatment room from a treatment room desk in the foyer outside the exhibition hall. Donated treatment products will only be made available for those patients who do not have access to their own medication.

A limited number of scooters, wheelchairs, crutches, and walkers can be made available upon request.

Emergencies and medical problems

If your medical problem is not related to your bleeding disorder, it is suggested that you either contact a doctor through the hotel/accommodation or visit the emergency department of one of the local hospitals. The Glasgow Royal Infirmary is near the Convention Center at 84 Castle Street G4 0SF – Tel: 0141-211-4000. A Haemophilia Center is located at the same address and has an out of hours emergency Haemophilia line where you can ask to speak to the haematologist on call for the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

For non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries, the SEC Medical Center is another option onsite, based within the main SEC building at Exhibition Way, Glasgow, G3 8YW.
