Staff and the VTE Team

We are delighted that Ashford and St. Peter’s has been awarded Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Exemplar Centre Status by NHS England. This is a huge achievement as it recognises our commitment to patient safety and VTE prevention at the Trust.

Initial feedback from the NHS England panel was great and particularly highlighted our ‘impressive governance processes, extensive VTE training and education plan, excellent use of marketing, branding and creativity to bring VTE to life.’ They went on to say how VTE Prevention Nurse Specialist, Rebecca Bushby’s extraordinary enthusiasm and passion for bringing VTE to the forefront is both inspiring and exciting.

Chief Executive Suzanne Rankin, commented, “I am absolutely delighted with the VTE team’s huge achievement and recognition for all of their amazing work, in being accredited as an Exemplar Centre by NHS England – just fabulous!”
