Nice | Venous thromboembolism (DVT) investigation and management

3rd August 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline is a good summary of the management of the investigation and management of venous thromboembolism . Different areas locally vary a lot in how they manage patients (eg anticoagulation clinics vs GP led services), so you may think most of this is done in the clinics – but if you work in Southampton – it may be you!

Remember that SIGN released some excellent guidance last year which covers VTE in special groups – eg pregnant women / flying etc.

The big changes here are in clarifying who needs what investigations for cancer and thrombophilia after a VTE. The rest is probably familiar to everyone.

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
