Deep Vein Thrombosis

The Nurse-led Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Service provides assessment and diagnosis to patients with a suspected DVT. After being referred you attend the DVT clinic at Westbourne usually on the same day for assessment and diagnosis. Depending on your test results you may then have an ultrasound scan to confirm if you have a DVT.

Patients with a positive result will then be commenced on appropriate treatment and then referred to our Anticoagulation Service for ongoing monitoring.

Patients can be referred by a GP or healthcare professional, please call 01482 247111 for further referral information.

Referral criteria:

  • Patients aged 18 years of age and over.
  • Suitable for Ambulatory care.
  • Stable medical condition.
  • Alcohol or substance misuse under stable clinical care with another primary health care professional/service.
