That this House congratulates Lifeblood, the thrombosis charity, on the tireless campaigning it has undertaken over the past five years in raising the profile of thrombosis amongst politicians and decision-makers whilst providing vital information and support to patients and their families on all areas of thrombosis and its related conditions; recognises that over 25,000 people die each year from venous thromboembolism (VTE) or blood clots, contracted in hospital, which is many times the number of deaths per year from hospital-acquired infections; notes that many of the deaths from VTE are preventable with safe and cost-effective methods of prevention available; is concerned that hospitals are not following the Chief Medical Officer's best practice recommendations published in April; and calls on the Government to ensure that all patients, both medical and surgical, who are admitted to hospital undergo a mandatory documented risk assessment for venous thrombosis and that this is audited to ensure implementation of this life-saving measure.
