Anti-Coagulation Service

If you live in Westminster and are taking warfarin, you can now be seen closer to home at the Marylebone Health Centre rather than a hospital. The Health Centre is now offering services for people who need to take Warfarin on a regular basis. Warfarin is a prescribed drug available in tablet form. If you are taking this drug you need regular blood tests to monitor how thin your blood is.

Westminster PCT and the health centre are working closely with St Mary's Hospital consultants to ensure staff providing this service in general practice do so to the highest standards that are as good as any hospital based service. Following your confirmation that you would like to attend the clinic at the Marylebone Health Centre, a practice nurse will advise you when you can be seen and arrange an appointment for you. The appointment will ensure a smooth transition from hospital care so there is no gap in your treatment. The clinics will take place usually on Tuesdays 8.30 - 11.30am and on Thursdays 9.00 - 11.00am.

You will be seen by a trained nurse or GP who will be responsible for deciding your Warfarin dose and the monitoring of your treatment. Your blood will be tested, your Warfarin dose decided and a new appointment given. You will also have the opportunity to discuss any worries that you might have about your anti-coagulation treatment.

Health Trainer Service

The Health Trainer Service offers free and confidential one-to-one sessions to people living in Westminster. Delivered by specially trained health trainers, the aim of the service is to support people to improve their health through their own actions, by setting and achieving personal goals. The service can benefit those who wish to:

Change their diet (particularly in response to a health condition)

  • Lose weight
  • Get more active
  • Reduce or give up smoking
  • Reduce or give up alcohol
  • Identify ways to enhance wellbeing

The Health Trainer Service can also signpost or refer clients to relevant local activities and services.

healthy_appleAlcohol Health Assessment Service - New Service At Marylebone Health Centre

Do you like a few drinks at the weekend? Do you drink alcohol socially or at home? 

If you drink to get drunk, or drink more heavily than you’re used to, you can’t be sure what the effects could be.

Regularly drinking more than the recommended amount of daily units or rapidly drinking too much in one go both have their risks. It is recommend that you should not regularly drink more than–4 units of alcohol a day for men, 2–3 units of alcohol a day for women. ’Regularly’ means drinking every day or most days of the week.

If you drink more than this, the risks to your health and personal safety start to increase – especially if you regularly drink large amounts over a short period of time.

Pregnant women and women trying to conceive should avoid alcohol altogether and never drink more than 1–2 units once or twice a week.
