Tips for using HealthInfo for general practices

Most pages in HealthPathways have an Information section at the bottom called For patients or Patient Information. Click the link to expand the section. The For patients or Patient Information section includes a keyword that you can write on the HealthInfo card. Your patient can go to HealthInfo and search for the keyword to find information relevant to their condition.

The For patients or Patient Information section also provides a link to the most relevant page on HealthInfo. You can click the link to show the HealthInfo page to your patient during their consultation.

Ordering more cards

You can order HealthInfo cards, flyers and posters by going to the Community & Public Health website. If you want to order more than 100 HealthInfo cards, download this order form and follow the instructions on the form to place your order.

Finding information on HealthInfo

Follow the links in the For patients or Patient Information section. Or go to HealthInfo and use the search box at the top right of the page.

Printing information to give to patients

Click the Printable resources links in the For patients or Patient Information section. Most of the links go to PDFs that you can print (using an A4 printer). Some of the links go to HealthInfo and some go to other websites. The links have all been checked and recommended by Canterbury GPs. Send us feedback (see below) if you have any resources that you would like us to consider for the For patients or Patient Information sections.

Emailing information to patients

Find the information on HealthInfo using the search box at the top right of the page and go to the page. Click the envelope icon in the HealthInfo page's footer (under Share HealthInfo). This will create an email with a hyperlink to the HealthInfo page. You can enter the patient's email address and send them the link.
