The bottom line

Clarify the warfarin dose that the patient is taking, and check for co-existing problems (such as liver disease or cancer), dietary changes, and intake of alcohol and other drugs that may increase risk of bleeding or affect international normalised ratio control.

Urgently refer all patients with suspected intracranial or gastrointestinal bleeding to secondary care.
