Community Pharmacy Anticoagulant Management

 

Community pharmacy anticoagulant management Service (CPAMS) – INR testing for warfarin patients. Warfarin is used by some people as a blood thinning medicine e.g. after a stroke. It is important that blood results are regularly checked. This service involves having a quick test (finger prick) in the pharmacy to work out the correct dose. This saves you a trip to your local laboratory and waiting for your blood test to be processed. Pharmacists who perform this service are accredited to do so.

Appointments are preferred for this service.
