HealthPathways

Our Mid and North Coast HealthPathways is like a ‘care map’, so that all members of a health care team, whether they work in a hospital or the community, can be on the same page when it comes to looking after a particular person.

HealthPathways are designed to be used at the point of care, primarily for general practitioners but is also available to hospital specialists, nurses, allied health and other health professionals.

The HealthPathways contain information on how to assess, manage and refer in the local context of available services with appropriate local referral and local pre-referral work up requirements, ensuring faster access for patients.
