Anticoagulation

Our nurse-led service provides advice and dose recommendation for patients taking oral anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin). Nurses provide dosing advice to patients based on the results of the latest blood test (called INR), unless they are just starting medication, whereupon there is a need to firstly establish the therapeutic range. We consider risk factors like other medication and treatment and rely on the most up to date information about the patient when advising them. We are happy to advise carers and relatives if this is the best way of ensuring the patient receives the correct dose.

The service includes domiciliary visits to housebound patients for testing and management of their warfarin. Referrals to the service are made via the Whipps Cross Anticoagulation Team and to book in for your next appointment call 020 8298 6491.
