What does the Centre do?
The Centre helps to coordinate the care of people living with bleeding disorders throughout the wider Auckland region. The Centre also helps to manage factor replacement products for people with bleeding disorders.
Because it is important that all bleeding episodes are managed promptly, the Centre aims to review all severe acute bleeding cases rapidly, generally within 24 hours of a bleed being reported to a doctor or specialist nurse.
The Centre aims to provide a review of all patients annually, in order to ensure that each patient is receiving the correct level of advice and support in managing their bleeding disorder.
Review appointments are held at the Auckland Haemophilia Centre. You may be seen by a specialist nurse, doctor or physiotherapist. We aim to coordinate appointments so that you only have one visit to the Centre.
If you require further visits, for example a series of appointments with your physiotherapist, you may be asked to attend either:
- Greenlane Clinical Centre – Physiotherapy Outpatients, Level 1, Building 7 (Adults
- Starship Children’s Health – Children’s Therapy, Level 3 (Children)
