The VTE clinic take referrals for patients with unilateral leg swelling.
Referrals can be from General Practice, Emergency Department or Secondary Care (including the SDECs).
There must be no history of trauma, chest pain or shortness of breath. Patients with bilateral symptoms are not accepted, as it is rare that a DVT is responsible for this.
The clinic is open from 8am to 2pm Monday to Saturday.
