Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Assessment Service 

We are a small team of thrombosis nurses who provide an ambulatory, fast track service for the diagnosis and management of DVT. GPs can refer patients’ fast track for suspected DVT assessment. 

We provide information and anticoagulant advice and facilitate the early discharge of patients with DVT, pulmonary embolism (PE) and certain other conditions that require fast warfarin loading in an outpatient setting.

We are a hospital-based education resource for patients, staff and primary care services.

When is the thrombosis treatment team available?

Monday-Friday: 09.00-16.30

Weekends & Bank Holidays: 09.00hr-12.00

Out-of-hours: suspected DVT patients are assessed in the Ambulatory Care Unit on EAU 3 or in the Emergency Department

Referrals:

Patients who are worried about leg symptoms should first seek advice from their general practitioner (GP), who can refer them directly to the Thrombosis Treatment Team for DVT assessment.

If for any reason you cannot be seen by your GP you should go to your nearest Emergency Department
