Lynda Bonner, NNMN founder was awarded an OBE in 2017 for her outstanding contribution to VTE prevention.
Members are in regular contact with each other, discussing clinical queries and sharing resources and a wealth of expertise and knowledge.
The network meets biannually to discuss topical issues, share learning from interesting hospital associated thrombosis cases and hears from speakers to expand knowledge and promote continuous quality improvement.
The Network has an important leadership role and aims to educate and inspire nurses and midwives to prevent patient harm from VTE by embedding gold standard care in their organisations.
