We hear too many times that members feel they are left far too long between INR tests and their INR reading being too low or too high above their therapeutic range is cause for concern! We also know that the anticoagulant providers are over stretched with more people being prescribe anticoagulants. So why can't the GP/Nurse carryout emergency INR tests when patients raise their concerns about their INR following taking drugs from a chemist or when the GP issue new drugs? Your views would be welcome.
