Patient pathways

Pain management, self care, and local agreements, are just some of the topics you'll find in these pages. Click on the links below to find out more.

The pathways are the route or path a patient will take if they are referred for treatment by their GP (or other health professional). From first contact with the GP, through referral, to the completion of their treatment; including the period the patient is in a hospital or a treatment centre, right up until they leave.

The pathway gives an outline of what is likely to happen on the patient's journey and can be used both for patient information and for planning services.
