Deep Vein Thrombosis

We provide an award winning Community Deep Vein Thrombosis ("DVT") Service across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

Your doctor will have referred you to our service to determine whether or not you have a DVT – (blood clot) in your leg. 

We aim to offer a same or next day ultrasound scan from one of our community based clinics.  When you attend one of our clinics you will be seen by one of our Ultrasonographers and a Health Care Assistant.

The Ultrasonographer will scan your leg from the top of your thigh to your ankle, the result of which will be explained to you fully.

Should the scan show that there is no DVT you will be discharged back to the care of your doctor.

When a clot is found in your leg, you will start treatment with us straightaway.

You will be provided with information about your treatment options and following discussion with a member of the DVT Treatment Centre staff, you can choose which method of treatment you would prefer.  This decision is supported by a doctor and every patient's progress is closely monitored.

A complete report will be sent to your doctor.

Patients that have a confirmed DVT and received treatment, are more than welcome to attend our dedicated support group, run by our Clinical Matron, Jackie Adams.
