GP Care's award winning Community Deep Vein Thrombosis ("DVT") Service comprises diagnosis and treatment of potential or actual DVTs.
The Service is wholly primary care based including the provision of: near-patient blood tests at patients' registered practice; same or next day ultrasound scans from community-based locations; and community-based anticoagulation for patients with confirmed DVTs.
Established in October 2008, the Community DVT Service represents a significant improvement to the previous Patient Pathway and delivers a substantial saving to the NHS.
As a result, 97% of patients who have DVT diagnosed in one of our community clinics avoid hospital entirely. Instead, they attend a convenient local surgery for their treatment, where appointments run on time and they can expect continuity of staff.
