Having suddenly developed a very swollen left leg I went to my local GP at 8am for an emergency appointment, got seen at 10am. The doctor immediately rang the DVT clinic at the James Paget for an ultrasound scan at 12.10pm. Got there early and was seen at 11.30am. They found a blood clot and got me a CT scan by 1pm. Meanwhile the DVT nurse talked me through the process for self injecting Dalteparin anticoagulant and arranged a series of blood tests for determining how much Warfarin I should take. I was home again by 5pm. I can find no fault at all with the kindly and efficient treatment that I received.
