About Us

Haemnet is a registered charity that supports health and social care professionals to ensure that excellent care becomes an everyday experience for people with bleeding disorders. We provide education, undertake research and drive service innovation.

Haemnet began as an online professional network (www.haemnet.com) that aimed to connect the nurses and health care professionals who manage people with haemophilia and inherited bleeding disorders, to help them share clinical experience. Before Haemnet, when a haemophilia nurse needed advice or encountered a “difficult-to-manage” patient, he or she would phone a friend for advice. Now, those conversations also take place on Haemnet with more voices contributing, to the benefit of the whole community.

What began as a UK-initiative quickly spread across the worldwide haemophilia community: now more than 550 nurses and physiotherapists from around the world are registered on Haemnet and a growing number of psychologists and social workers.
