Counselling Service Temporarily Unavailable

Kathryn Body, our counsellor since 2016, has taken long service leave from 27th November 2023. Kathryn has advised HFACT that she will not be returning to the role once her leave finishes. Kathryn is resigning for personal reasons due to other commitments.

The HFACT committee is sad to see Kathryn leave. We thank her for her dedicated service, and the enthusiasm and energy she brought to the role over the past eight years. She will be a huge loss, hard to replace her unique qualities and experience. Kathryn helped many of the families of the Canberra region affected by haemophilia and other related inherited bleeding disorders.

HFACT will hold a farewell event for Kathryn. Full details will be in our next newsletter, but at this stage it is proposed to be the afternoon or evening of Saturday 3rd February 2024.

Recruitment for a suitable person to fill the counsellor position is underway.

Our counselling service will be temporarily unavailable until the position is filled. If you need support related to haemophilia or another inherited bleeding disorder, please contact the Canberra Hospital Haemophilia Treatment Centre in the first instance.
