The King's Thrombosis Centre is a leading multidisciplinary clinical and research group dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of hypercoagulable conditions.

We are a designated Haemophilia Centre and were the first National Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) Exemplar Centre, reflecting our national leadership in the prevention and treatment of VTE. Our clinical trials unit works in partnership with industry to develop new treatments for VTE prevention and treatment.

With the next generation of oral anticoagulants entering clinical practice, the FIRST registry will provide an important data tool to increase knowledge and improve the quality of care of patients with VTE.
