Patients should be encouraged to wear DVT stockings if they are having a major operation and information about make and availability needs to be available ahead of the date of surgery. Perahps there could be a leaflet or poster in the dispensing area of the local pharmacy that illustrates what the benefits are of wearing DVT stockings prior to surgery. This might also assist travellers who are flying a long distance and would benefit from wearing DVT stockings. In the same way as for patients, travellers need the information long before the day of travel because the socks might not be avaialle in the right size at the airport. Even as a Christmas or Birthday present the socks would be appreciated as a gesture of care and good sense from family and friends.
