VTE Programme History

A Nationwide focus on VTE prevention was kick started in 2005 by publication of the Health Care Select Committee report which highlighted that VTE in hospitalised patients was a significant and largely preventable problem. This was the catalyst for rapid and widespread action aimed at reducing the risk of VTE in hospitalised patients throughout the next decade.
