Working to prevent avoidable venous thromboembolism

Leaflet resource

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is an international patient safety issue and a clinical priority for the NHS. Around half of all cases of VTE are associated with hospitalisation, with many events occurring up to 90 days after admission. It is a leading and preventable cause of death in an estimated 25,000 of hospitalised patients each year.
