Details of the Request
Local guidance detailing advice or guidance for use of NOACs / DOACs in VTE / DVT.
Usually this would be in the form of a guideline, protocol or Rx advice sheet.
Are you able to tell me where I might find the above / provide it as an attachment?
Details of the Response
NOACs and DOACs are not used as first line Thromboprophylaxis (TP) at Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We would always use LMWH (Enoxaparin) as per the trust policy (sent to requester) where section 1 would seem relevant.
Please also see section 6.2.2 on Page 8 and Appendix 7 which may be useful.
