The purpose of the Venous Thromboembolism Risk Assessment Data Set is to quantify the number of PATIENTS (aged 16 and over) admitted to hospital, who are risk assessed for Venous Thromboembolism using the Venous Thromboembolism Risk Assessment Tool to allow appropriate preventative treatment based on guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
