Nice | Dabigatran for the treatment and prevention of DVT and PE

NICE now advises that dabigatran can now be used for the treatment of DVT and PE and can also be used to prevent their recurrence. 

Remember that there are two doses of dabigatran.

The lower dose should be used:

  • in the over 80s 
  • if people are on verapamil.

"We have used LocumDeck for a number of months now and find it really useful when booking locums. You can see the availability of GPs, their documents are all loaded on the site and you can book instantly – it takes minutes to do. There are also no expensive locum agency fees to pay – just the GP’s actual payment. It's quick and hassle-free."

Lesley Munro-Faure, Managing Partner at Unity Health, York
