Pre-Assessment  |  Pre-Operative Anaemia or Iron Deficiency




Pre-Assessment

This pathway demonstrates the approach to anaemia or iron deficiency if detected at preassessment. The preassessment team will give the patient a letter to present to their GP indicating that anaemia or iron deficiency is present and requires further action. The patient will be contacted by preassessment six months later, and if no further action has been taken it is possible that their elective operation will be cancelled.

Disclaimer:
These pathways, for the care and management of patients within Bay of Plenty, have been developed jointly by primary and secondary care clinicians. They provide guidance for General Practice teams to diagnose and manage patients suffering from a number of different conditions, and contain patient information resources. The pathways are maps of publicly-funded services accessed by referral from the community, and are strongly evidence based, but are not full clinical guidelines. As the pathways are suggested guidance only, while using them you must exercise your own clinical judgement and pertinent clinical data when treating your patient. This site is intended to be flexible and frequently updated. While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, all information should be verified.
