How much money has the Trust spent on treating deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (blood clots) between January 1st 2018 and December 31st 2018? We estimate the cost of treatment for the period January 1st 2018 until December 31st 2018 to be circa £863k.

This is an approximation because we do not classify costs by individual treatments or diagnoses such as DVT or PE.

Please break down the data to questions 1 and 2 by hospital.
