Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (“the CCG”) is considering their options for the continued commissioning of a Community DVT service for all adults aged 18 or over who are registered with a GP in Bath and North East Somerset. Patients would be eligible for the service based on having a suspected DVT.
The aim is to provide a comprehensive service for adults with a suspected DVT involving assessment, intervention, evaluation, advice and support. This will be in line with national and local best practice guidance, and local population requirements. The vision for people with a suspected DVT in the Bath and North East Somerset CCG area is to receive timely high quality assessment and treatment that is effective, delivered in the community and easily accessed. The service will be free at the point of access.
