Lifeblood will be holding the first ever UK Thrombosis Patient Day on Tuesday 6th May at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. They have some fantastic speakers and will be featuring lectures and patient stories in the morning and workshops in the afternoon, covering a wide variety of subjects from PTS through to managing anticoagulation therapy.
There will be two poster campaigns this year. The first featuring hospital acquired clots (our on-going awareness theme) and the second featuring post thrombotic syndrome (PTS). Volunteers have kindly agreed to have their legs photographed for the posters and we also have the free services of a photographer and graphic designer volunteer. Thank you so much to all involved.
There is a minimal registration fee of £5 for the day to cover tea/coffee and a buffet lunch. Concessions will be available for those on benefits to help make this day accessible to all. For further information or to register for the event contact Anita firstname.lastname@example.org. A promotional poster will shortly be available, and we would ask our supporters to share this as far afield as possible so that those who would benefit from the event are aware it is happening.
