National Thrombosis Survey Report 2021

Thrombosis UK are sharing the recently published National Thrombosis Survey Report, developed in collaboration with NHS GIRFT (Getting It Right First Time) and the VTE Exemplar Network. You can download and read the full report here.

As you may be aware, the GIRFT national programme is designed to improve the treatment and care of patients through in-depth review of services, benchmarking, and presenting a data-driven evidence base to support change.

Run between 2019-2020, the National Thrombosis Survey, examined hospital-acquired thromboembolism (HA-VTE) utilising GIRFT’s established methodology to gather and analyse data on the rates of hospital-acquired VTE and evidence recommendations to improve:

  • Prevention
  • Cost savings
  • Patient outcomes

Thrombosis UK was delighted to be part of this innovative project which has now provided evidenced and reasoned recommendations for current practice to improve effective and efficient thrombosis prevention and management of hospital acquired thrombosis without the need for radical change or additional investment.
