Venous thromboembolism (VTE) investigation and management – new NICE advice

This is an updated guideline from NICE on the investigation and management of venous thromboembolism (VTE). It was published in Mar 20.

There is also a very good visual summary, which outlines investigations and gives a superb summary on treatment options.

There are quite a few changes in this guideline and I have outlined these at the top, before doing a general summary.

So what is new in this guideline?

PERC – the Pulmonary Embolism Rule-out Criteria.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
