What we do


GP using HealthPathways during a patient consultation.

HealthPathways is the clinical and referral information portal used at point-of-care by GPs who practice in South Western Sydney.

GPs access management and treatment options for a range of clinical presentations and obtain information about local clinical services and their referral processes. Each pathway provides clear and concise guidance for assessing and managing a patient with a particular symptom or condition. Pathways also include information about making requests to services in the local health system.

HealthPathways contains more than 600 localised pathways and continues to expand. Information is translated where available.

HealthPathways is free to access for all health professionals who practice in South Western Sydney.
