New sponsor for BE Men’s National Fours championships.

Bowls England is delighted to announce CoaguChek® as official sponsors of the 2013 Men’s National Fours Championship.

CoaguChek® XS is an easy to use portable device for people on long-term warfarin.

Warfarin is most commonly used for the prevention of stroke, and requires regular INR blood tests – a standard measure of blood clotting time. Having to regularly attend clinic for these tests can cause disruption, inconvenience and expense. 

CoaguChek®XS offers a fast, convenient and safe alternative. After a simple prick of the finger, it enables people to self-monitor their INR.  With the support of their healthcare professional, people can save time consuming trips to clinics, giving them freedom to live their life.

Allison Rossiter, Director of Point of Care at Roche, said: “CoaguChek® XS gives people on warfarin the option to self-monitor their INR levels, putting them more in control. Self-monitoring with the CoaguChek® XS meter gives people an alternative way to test their blood clotting time wherever they are. Self-care is at the heart of the NHS reform and CoaguChek® is an example of how technology can help the increasing number of people with long-term conditions.”

Tony Allcock MBE, Bowls England Chief Executive, added: “We are delighted to welcome CoaguChek as sponsors of the Men’s National Fours Championship and wish to thank them for their support of Bowls England.”
