Bedford Warfarin Service

Who we are

The Bedford Warfarin Service manages stable or largely uncomplicated patients over the age of 18 who have been prescribed warfarin for a medical condition, where their blood clotting time needs to be increased to prevent clots from forming.

In a 10-minute appointment, patients will have their blood tested, receive the result and be advised about the appropriate dose of warfarin.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have with a qualified Health Professional. 

The blood test is done using a finger prick blood sample and a Near Patient Testing Device, which has been used in hospitals and general practice for many years.

The result is usually ready in less than a minute and patients will be informed about the appropriate dose straight away. At the end of the consultation, the patient will be booked in for a follow up appointment.

The service is part of Bedfordshire Community Health Services.
