Change in process for Giant Cell Arteritis

A new process is in place for patients with suspected Giant Cell Arteritis in the Bay of Plenty.
The Fast Track Giant Cell Arteritis eReferral form has been discontinued. Please use the generic rheumatology form instead.
However, as before, please make sure you telephone a rheumatologist to discuss your case before sending the referral. They are available through the hospital switchboard (07 579 8044) on weekdays 1-4pm. If the rheumatologist agrees that a referral is required, please mark it ‘Urgent’.
The full pathway is available here.
Please contact the GP Liaison team via with any queries.
