Anticoagulation

Community Warfarin Service

Our anticoagulation service has been running since January 2015, currently providing Anti-Coagulation monitoring for Warfarin patients. The overall aim for the community anticoagulation service is to have a collaborative approach for providing ongoing monitoring and management of anticoagulation therapy in the community for patients aged 18 and over, who are registered with a GP practice in Waltham Forest CCG. The objectives of the service are to offer clinically effective monitoring and management of patients, to improve convenience and accessibility for patients testing facilities. We have several clinics throughout the week in the Waltham Forest borough that are located in Chingford, Leytonstone and Walthamstow. Patients who are housebound are provided with a domiciliary service. Any anticoagulation queries, please contact 0208 298 6491.

 

Community DOAC Service

FedNet are happy to announce the recent roll out of the DOAC initiation service for Waltham Forest registered patients. The DOAC service will┬áprovide community based anti-coagulation counselling and initiation services for the defined cohort of patients diagnosed with new AF registered with and referred by a Waltham Forest practice. The service will complement the existing warfarin monitoring service that we deliver. There is no need to refer to Bart’s Anti-Coagulation clinics for the new DOAC cohort. We hope this will support the boroughs anti-coagulation services. The aims and objectives to this service will be to provide community anticoagulation counselling, provide equitable access and a consistent approach for patients with AF requiring anticoagulation therapy and provide a communication network between all medical and allied health professionals involved in patients care. Any DOAC queries, please contact 0208 298 6491.
