Why has the NHS suddenly putting out a contract for 3 billion pounds worth of coagulants?

The UK Government is ordering over £3 billion worth of anticoagulant drugs to be delivered over a little over 2-years. That is a massive amount of anti-blood clotting agent to be orders, much, much more than the usual amount. Why is that so? Who could they be expecting?

Is there a massive amount of blood clotting expected over the coming two years? What could cause so many blood clots in the general population that so much coagulant would be ordered?

What would create clots that could create a problem of that magnitude?

This is what you can find on the UK Government Contract Finder.
