Comments:
The Formulary choice of LMWH for both Sheffield and Doncaster Acute Trusts is Dalteparin, for which a shared care process exists.
Acute Trusts in other areas may operate a shared care system for other LMWH’s. Primary Care may wish to consider engaging in this system providing appropriate paperwork is sent from the initiaing prescriber to support this.

Rotherham Patients:
Rotherham Hospital is currently using Tinzaparin as it’s LMWH and is in the process of developing it’s own Shared Care documentation.
