Stop the Clot Campaign
In recent weeks all I have been reading about in papers and online news
sources is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and varicose veins. From prevention
methods to tour buses travelling around assessing peoples blood clot risks,
DVT awareness is everywhere. Now in the spotlight is the Stop the Clot
Campaign in Europe.
The Essex Harlow Herald said, "The lifesaving Stop the Clot campaign was
launched by the charity Anticoagulation Europe in a bid to stop needless
deaths and has been supported by MPs, celebrities and hospitals across the
region, including Harlow's Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH). Sarah Ayton,
deep vein thrombosis (DVT) specialist at PAH says: "We have seen an increase
in patients asking for a risk assessment."
The campaign has been considered a huge success in promoting the dangers,
risks and treatments involved in DVT.
