Are your practice details up-to-date on the National Health Services Directory?

In order for hospital correspondence to be delivered to you, please ensure that your practice details are up-to-date on the National Health Services Directory. It's also vital that fax machines are loaded with paper and left in "energy saver mode" overnight and on weekends.



HealthPathways Melbourne is an online portal designed to be used by general practice at the point of care to guide best practice assessment and management of common medical conditions, including when and where to refer patients.
