Bath therapists write new national patient information leaflet for Thrombosis UK

Two specialist medical therapists from the RUH have been chosen to write an information leaflet for people recovering from a blood clot, which is being distributed to patients across the country. Regitse Lewis and Chrissie Entwistle were approached by national charity Thrombosis UK to author the leaflet after the charity heard about the work they were doing at the RUH to encourage patients who had experienced a blood clot to exercise.

The leaflet, titled Getting Active After a Blood Clot, explains why exercise is so important to help recovery and includes examples of ways to keep fit, such as setting up a walking programme and resistance training.

The leaflets are already available in departments throughout the RUH and can be supplied to hospitals across the UK on request.
