Just got home after efficient and speedy nurse appt for the bloods and ECG I requested ( on Apixaban and Flecainide) For once appt was with Sister not one of our very good HCAs and she did both.
I mentioned I'd had to ask a GP for these checks and could it not be flagged up. She said they were looking into it as GP had written reason for blood test "Annual on Apixaban". She then said "lots of our patients are on Apixaban and we didn't know they should have yearly blood tests" I presume she meant the nurses though who can say? At least its now being looked into I hope.
