Spire Alexandra joins VTE National Exemplar Centre Network

Spire Alexandra Hospital underwent an audit and inspection for its work on venous thromboembolism (VTE) and has been awarded Exemplar Centre status, making it the first independent hospital in England to be approved.

Venous thrombosis is a blood clot, or thrombus, that forms within a vein. Thrombosis is a blood clot which occurs within a blood vessel. A typical type of venous thrombosis is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can break off and become a pulmonary embolism (PE). The conditions of DVT and PE are referred to collectively with the term venous thromboembolism.*

Spire Alexandra Hospital's status was awarded by Dr Roopen Arya, Director of Kinds Exemplar Network, Consultant Haematologist at Kings College Hospital, and Karen Smith, Clinical & Safety Manager for the NHS East of England.
