Blood transfusion requests in the EBOP

Sadly a patient recently arrested and died in SAU after being referred for a blood transfusion.  As a result all patients requiring blood transfusions in the Eastern Bay of Plenty will now need to be discussed and approved with the medical SMO or subspeciality involved in their care.  Patients with menorrhagia should be discussed with the gynaecology team.

If you have any questions regarding this notice please contact the Bay Nav team - baynav@bopdhb.govt.nz
