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