Anticoagulation

Covid-19 update: NHS England and NHS Improvement has published a Clinical Guide for the Management of Anticoagulant Services During the Coronavirus Pandemic (November 2020).

Access advice on DOAC initiation and monitoring through the e-Referrals Advice and Guidance service. Most trusts have advice services under ‘Specialty – Haematology’ and ‘Clinic Type – Anti Coagulant’.

For specific clinical information relating to warfarin and DOACs please see enhanced services on the right. An NCL referral form for DOAC or warfarin has been devised for those patients who still require a secondary care service (see Downloads. For the EMIS version, look for NCL Anticoagulation Referral Form from the EMIS Forms page).
