Deep Vein Thrombosis

Plans for the re-modelling of the Minor Surgery and Vasectomy Service are being developed across Blackburn with Darwen and East Lancashire CCGs. Any service redesign and changes to service specifications being planned will be inclusive of patient, provider and stakeholder engagement.

A survey of patient satisfaction into the DVT service was carried out in Autumn 2016. The majority of patients felt the service was very good or good. They felt the service was much faster and efficient compared to how the service had been carried out in the past. The majority of patients were seen on the day, with some as quickly as two hours. The majority of people surveyed felt nothing needed to be improved whilst others said improved leaflets and better communication were needed.
