About this service

Anticoagulant monitoring service

Anticoagulant monitoring

This service is provided at Ipswich Hospital only.

Anticoagulants are medicines that help prevent blood clots. They’re given to people at a high risk of getting clots, to reduce their chances of developing serious conditions such as strokes and heart attacks. We monitor patients who are on anticoagulants such as Warfarin.   

You can contact the service on 01473 703 228 between 10:00am and 12:30pm and 1:30pm to 4:00pm Monday to Friday. You can leave an answerphone message at other times.  You can contact us by email at ams@ipswichhospital.nhs.uk
