Publication date: 05 July 2018

Responding to research by the University of Nottingham and published in the BMJ, Chair of the Royal College of GPs Prof Helen Stokes-Lampard said:

"Patients taking warfarin and other anticoagulants should not panic at the findings of this latest research and it is paramount that they do not stop taking their medication without consulting their GP. Patients who have any concerns about the anticoagulant medications they are taking should discuss this with their GP at their next routine appointment."
