GP Care is awarded a new contract with NHS Bristol to deliver a DVT Diagnosis and Treatment Service

GP Care is delighted to announce that it has won a significant new contract with NHS Bristol – to deliver a community based Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) diagnostic and treatment service for patients living in the North of Bristol.

Patients are now able to attend a wholly community based service to include: near-patient blood tests at their own practice; same or next day ultrasound at a community location in Southmead,  delivered by GP Care’s team of highly experienced ultrasonographers; and community based anticoagulation for patients with confirmed DVTs. The service represents a significant improvement in the patient pathway and delivers a very substantial saving to the NHS.
GP Care has provided this successful service for other primary care trusts in the south west to high acclaim by patients, general practitioners and the primary care trusts alike.
For further information on this service or on any other GP Care service, then please call us on 0333 332 2100 or email us at info@gpcare.org.uk.
