Our Mid and North Coast HealthPathways website 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 also for hospital specialists, nurses, allied health professionals and others.
HealthPathways contain information on how to assess, manage and refer in the local context of available services, with appropriate local referral and pre-referral work up requirements, ensuring faster access for patients.

Mid and North Coast HealthPathways is developed by Healthy North Coast in collaboration with Mid North Coast Local Health District and Northern NSW Local Health District.
In 2020 – 2021, Healthy North Coast, together with partners, Mid North Coast Local Health District and Northern NSW Local Health District, commissioned a process and outcomes evaluation of the Mid and North Coast HealthPathways program.
The evaluation identified strengths in the program as a trusted and reliable source of local clinical information at the point of care. This also supports relationship-building across different levels of the health system and improvements to regional models of care.
The HealthPathways team is working closely with partner and clinicians to implement recommendations from the evaluation report.
