Access to the new anticoagulants: A joint statement from Anticoagulation Europe & Lifeblood: The Thrombosis Charity
Access to the new anticoagulants: A joint statement from Anticoagulation Europe & Lifeblood: The Thrombosis Charity Lifeblood and Anticoagulation Europe are both very concerned that the NICE recommendations that there should be equal access to VKAs (warfarin) and NOACs in the NICE approved indications are not being implemented. The NHS constitution states that patients should not be denied access to NICE approved drugs.
24th Sept 2014 The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recommended self-monitoring of INR levels for people with atrial fibrillation and people with replacement heart valves - if the person prefers this form of testing and if the person or their carer is both physically and cognitively able to self-monitor effectively.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has revised its guidance on Atrial Fibrillation. It says that anticoagulation may be with Apixaban, Dabigatran Etixialte, Rivaroxaban or a Vitamin K Antagonist (warfarin). It also states that aspirin should no longer be used as a sole therapy for stroke prevention in AF.
