Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Service

The DVT service is a 'one-stop diagnostic shop' for adult patients with suspected DVT.

GPs can refer patients directly to the service for assessment. The service has its own laboratory and ultrasound room to speed up diagnosis. If a patient does have a DVT, they can discuss treatment options and start treatment the same day.

  • Monday to Friday: 9.00am - 5.00pm
  • Saturday and Bank Holidays: 9.00am - 1.00pm
  • Sunday: closed

Outside these hours GPs should decide whether the patient is suitable for outpatient assessment and treatment.

If they are not suitable, the patient should be referred to the on-call medical team at the John Radcliffe Hospital. If they are suitable for outpatient assessment and treatment, a 72 hour supply of either Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH), apixaban or rivaroxaban should be given and an appointment arranged for the DVT Clinic the next available day.

While dabigatran and edoxaban are licensed for acute treatment of VTE, they both require at least five days parenteral anticoagulation prior to initiation.

To arrange this appointment please telephone 01865 225629 and leave a full voicemail with the patient's details and a contact telephone number and email these details to:

Christmas Day and New Year's Day closed.
