Anticoagulation – Patient Survey

Lead: Leeds West

Area: Leeds North, Leeds South & East, Leeds West

Period: 2nd Dec 2013 - 28th Feb 2014

An Anticoagulant Service Development Project Board has now been established to set up the new service. We will post regular updates to show how patient feedback has been used to develop the service.

In Leeds there are approximately 10,000 people who take the anticoagulant drug, Warfarin. The average age of these patients is 72. This currently involves giving a blood sample around 18 times a year. These samples can be taken in the home or at clinics around the city.

New anticoagulant drugs have recently become available and this had prompted a review of the service and its patients. It had been agreed that a service redesign may help prioritise patients who need the service and improve the way care is delivered. The engagement outlined a number of redesign options for the anticoagulant service and had seeked the views of service users and the wider public on the changes.
