Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD), also called peripheral vascular disease, is a narrowing of the blood vessels (arteries). It mainly affects arteries that take blood to your legs. The main symptom is pain in one or both legs when you walk.

You will be invited to book a cholesterol blood test with a Phlebotomist.

A statin medication is usually advised for patients with PAD, in order to lower cholesterol. This helps to prevent a build-up of fatty patches (atheroma). If you are not already on this medication you will be contacted in order to make an appointment with one of our Clinical Pharmacists.

Patients with PAD are eligible to receive a flu vaccination annually during Influenza Vaccination Season. We will contact you when we start to accept bookings for this.
