A fantastic example of responsive and innovative care – our Children's Community Nursing Team are one of the only teams in the country delivering Factor 5 (human plasma) transfusions in the home setting to children.

Ibrahim Mahmood (14) suffers from a rare Factor 5 deficiency in his blood.  The team deliver the transfusion to him 4 times a week after school ensuring that he leads a relatively normal life, with out the need to go to hospital.

Factor 5 is a rare blood cloning deficiency and is missing protein in the blood meaning that injured blood vessels do not heal in the normal way.
