CLOT Secretary Jodie Williams wins RCP Excellence in Patient Care Award 2016

The Atrial Fibrillation Stroke Prevention Team comprising Dr Indira Natarajan, Claire Moss and CLOT secretary Jodie Williams won the team award in the Excellence in Patient Care Awards 2016 at the Royal College of Physicians award ceremony in Harrogate. The judges said " The AF stroke prevention team tackled a common problem which can often be managed poorly. The project shows great integration between primary and secondary care involving patients throughout. It demonstrates a multi-professional approach that clearly shows excellent outcomes demonstrating clinical efficacy". Well done Jodie from all at CLOT

CLOT Session at the BSH Annual Meeting 2016


The first CLOT session at the British Society of Haematology Annual Scientific Meeting was held on the 19th April 2016 and featured presentations on real world data on the use of DOAC's, how long to anticoagulate post unprovoked VTE, a comparison of risk factors for community and hospital acquired thrombosis with a five year follow up looking at recurrence and mortality and limited vs whole leg scanning. The session proved very popular as we not only filled the room we were using but also an overflow room next door. We are hopeful that we will be invited back to present at next years meeting in Brighton in March 2017 and should know before our annual meeting.
