Summary for primary care

Venous Disease Fact Sheet


This Guidelines summary of the Self Care Forum fact sheet on venous disease provides community pharmacy teams with recommendations for advising patients on managing venous disease, and includes:

  • useful facts
  • what patients can expect to happen 
  • what people can do to help themselves—now and in the future
  • when to seek medical help (the ‘red flags’)
  • where to find out more information.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the content of this fact sheet is correct at the time of publication, but information and self-care advice may change. The information provided is for general education only and does not list all the facts, management options, and warning symptoms. The fact sheet should only be provided in the context of the consultation, where the healthcare professional will be able to draw attention to particularly relevant information.
