Access to this website is only for those involved in developing and reviewing content for Nelson Marlborough HealthPathways.
These pathways, for the care and management of patients within Nelson Marlborough, have been developed jointly by primary and secondary care clinicians.
They provide guidance particularly for general practice teams but are read by other registered health professionals to diagnose and manage patients suffering from a number of different conditions, and contain patient information resources. They are not for access or use by non-registered health professionals or patients.
The pathways are maps of publicly-funded services accessed by referral from the community, and are strongly evidence based, but are not full clinical guidelines.
As the pathways are suggested guidance only, while using them you must exercise your own clinical judgement and pertinent clinical data when treating your patient.
This site is intended to be flexible and frequently updated. While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, all information should be verified.
The inclusion of links to websites or health providers in HealthPathways and ERMS is not a recommendation or endorsement of any health provider, health professional or their services. Use of services featured in these websites is undertaken at the user's own risk.
Patient information collected in the course of delivering publicly funded health services may be used for quality and safety purposes. Information identifying individual patients will be excluded from published reports.
