NEW Community DVT Service launches across BNSSG
Following our announcement that GP Care was awarded the new Community DVT Service contract from the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) CCG in January, we are delighted to be launching the service today, Wednesday 1st May.
Patients can be referred to the service by their GP for an ultrasound to confirm or rule out a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) in the leg. Should a DVT – or clot – be confirmed, the patient will receive treatment at one of our DVT Treatment Centres which are located across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire making it as easy as possible for patients to receive care closer to home.
We will be delivering the service from the following DVT Treatment Centre locations:
- Concord Medical Centre, Braydon Ave, Little Stoke, Bristol BS34 6B
- Crest Family Practice, The Crest Family Practice, William Budd Health Centre, Knowle West Health, Park, Downton Road, Bristol, BS4 1WH
- Eastville Medical Centre, East Trees Health Centre, 100a Fishponds Road, Bristol BS5 6SA
- St Georges Surgery, 135 Pastures Avenue, St Georges, Weston-Super-Mare, BS22 7SB
