Anti Coagulation Clinics (WARFARIN)

We are pleased to inform you that we now hold anticoagulation clinics at the practice on Friday afternoons. These clinics are run by nursing staff from the Anticoagulation Team at Russells Hall and Corbett Hospitals.

If you are interested in attending these clinics for your checks, please discuss this at the hospital when you have your next blood test.

Please note - appointments are generated and managed from the Anticoagulation Clinic at the hospital only and not by Lion Health.

Our practice is lucky to have an experienced network of counsellors who can be accessed via our G.P.s. Should counselling be felt necessary by your doctor then they will refer to sessions held at Lion Health, 2 Lowndes Road.
