Participation in this opportunity if being offered FREE of charge. Each participating practise will receive a full report sharing data and learning gained during the QI programme undertaken in their practice which can be submitted as part of their GP and CQC revalidation work.
No costs and minimum work burden for the practice staff.
As an outcome of this programme, if a clinical solutions tool to aid early identification of VTE is developed, participating practices will be invited to trial this, free of charge. The end goal being to make this available free of charge to NHS providers.
