Warfarin

Warfarin is used to prevent blood clots from forming or increasing in size in a patient’s blood and blood vessels. An anticoagulant that works by decreasing the clotting ability of the blood, it is prescribed for people with certain types of irregular heartbeat and with prosthetic heart valves. It is also used to treat or prevent pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the lung) and venous thrombosis (swelling and blood clot in a vein).

Warfarin is known to interact with many commonly used medications and other chemicals that may be present in appreciable quantities of food and these interactions may increase or reduce its anticoagulation effect. Therefore, in order to optimize the therapeutic effect, without risking dangerous side effects such as bleeding, close monitoring of the degree of anticoagulation is required by blood testing (I.N.R.).

At Stoneleigh Surgery, I.N.R. testing is undertaken by our Practice Nurses, Health Care Assistant and Phlebotomists.

Non-NHS Examinations

Medical examinations for special purposes eg. Elderly drivers, HGV, pre-employment, fitness to undertake sports, fitness to travel etc. are undertaken during surgery times. A fee will be payable. Please indicate your requirements when booking the appointment, since such examinations need longer appointments.
