Anticoagulation Clinic - Barnet Hospital

Barnet
Add to CPD

This service is staffed by anticoagulation nurses. They relieve blood clots and other blood disorders related to thrombosis by administering anticoagulant drugs and therapy.

Services include

  • anticoagulant monitoring clinic, using point of care testing (POCT).
  • ambulatory DVT service (day clinic for out-patients), managing patients referred directly from A&E to avoid hospital admission for deep vein thrombosis.
  • pre-operative consultations, to ensure that our patients’ anticoagulant therapy is safely managed and they are prepared for surgery.
  • support for patients wishing to self-administer anticoagulant drugs. Training, quality assurance and clinical advice are given.
  • initiation of new treatments like NOACS (novel direct oral anticoagulants) within NCL guidelines.
