Acupuncture advise given to doctors relating to any condition

L Taylor made this Official Information request to Capital and Coast District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: L Taylor

Dear Capital and Coast District Health Board,

RE: OIA request - Acupuncture advise given to doctors relating to any condition

I hope your well,

I am interested in the Capital and Coast Health Board position regarding doctors’ use of acupuncture and referral to acupuncturists.

I wish to obtain any information that has been given to any registered Doctors (GP's hospital consultants etc) sent from the CCDHD (e.g newsletters, notices, internal medical software) regarding the treatment of any condition with acupuncture and/or the referral process to an acupuncturist.

This advice may have been positive, negative or neutral.

I currently live in New Zealand, and am therefore eligible to make OIA requests.

Yours faithfully,

L Taylor
