IPU

Direct Oral Anticoagulants – Approval no longer required

The HSE PCRS will, from 1 November, remove the need for an approval process for DOACs. This lifting of the approval process follows long and extensive lobbying of the PCRS by the IPU to change their approach to the prescribing of DOACs. A circular is due to issue shortly from the HSE PCRS confirming this change.
