06 Dec Update to National Guidelines: Non-malignant Haematology (after hours service)
Updated guidance has just been published for children and young people presenting acutely to a paediatric service outside of Christchurch and Auckland with a non-malignant haematological problem.
Where possible they will be dealt with by the paediatric service using available Starship Clinical Guidelines. If additional assistance is required, this should be sought in the first instance from the the local haematologist in the first instance (if one is available). In the case of a transfusion medicine related problem, the local transfusion service specialist should be able to deal with the problem.
For full details on the new guidance please refer to the NCCN Guidelines on the the Starship website.
