‚ÄčHelen's recognition for raising standards in cardiovascular services

We're very proud that colleague Helen Williams was the recent winner of the Healthcare Exemplary Award at Thrombosis UK's 2016 Patient Awards.

At a ceremony at St Thomas' Hospital, Helen was recognised for her tireless efforts and achievement in the launch of a Pan London Consensus Statement on Anticoagulation Management.

Leading from this is the development of patient, clinician and commissioner tools intended to support a quality standard in anticoagulation services. Her leadership and continued perseverance in the face of multiple challenges is ensuring that 'Excellence in Anticoagulation Care' is the only level of care commissioned, accepted and delivered.

This work is now being looked at nationally for local adoption.
