Deep Vein Thrombosis Services

Blackburn with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group agreed to support the development of a new Community DVT Service  in March 2015 for 12 months. 


The purpose of this was to ‘test’ the effectiveness and efficiency that could be achieved through the implementation of a preventative and diagnostic model in the community setting. 


Commissioner’s intention was to use the service as an example of good practice by utilising the learning and outcomes to inform CCG’s commissioning intentions for 2016/17. 


A six month evaluation of the Service has been undertaken and a summary of the findings at the 6 month stage can be found here.
