Haverfordwest Rugby Club thanked for anticoagulation service support


A potted tree with a plaque was gifted to Haverfordwest Rugby club as a thank you from the Anticoagulation Department at Hywel Dda University Health Board.

The club facilitated the anticoagulation service’s clinics during the Covid-19 pandemic, whilst ensuring the highest level of hygiene by refurbing the area in order for it to meet the Infection Prevention and Control standards for Cleaning.

Staff from Hywel Dda UHB including support workers and nurses from the anticoagulation department gathered to give a presentation in appreciation of their support at the club, this was also attended by members of the RFC’s committee.

Esther Randell, Anticoagulation Clinical Nurse Specialist at Hywel Dda University Health Board said: “I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to Haverfordwest Rugby Club for allowing us to use their facilities to hold our Anticoagulation clinics over the past 15 months. We are truly grateful for their support and generosity over these uncertain times.

During the trials and tribulations that the pandemic has brought us, being able to provide our patients with a safe space to attend for their appointments has been a priority to us and invaluable to our patients.”
