We have made some minor changes to the referral form for the weight management programme and I am hoping that you can assist in getting this circulated out to your practices please. The criteria have not changed and I have attached this document as well.
We will try again to have this embedded into bpac but this wasn’t possible when we last tried.

We would like three minutes of your time
Next week you will receive an email invitation to complete a simple three-minute questionnaire about what cognitive assessment tool you currently use.
It is now one year since the recommended cognitive screening tool for General Practice changed from the MoCA © to the Mini-ACE.
We want to gain an accurate picture of current practice for cognitive assessment in General Practice across the country, to help guide support and education. To do this we need to hear from everyone. Please take a few minutes to answer this important short questionnaire next week.
This questionnaire is supported by the DHB Planning & Funding General Managers group

We’re looking for GPs who would be happy to talk about
providing care to trans and gender diverse people.
No ‘experience’ in caring for trans and gender diverse people? No worries! We still want to hear from you.
Why? Trans and gender diverse people generally experience poorer health outcomes in Aotearoa New Zealand. Many barriers exist that prevent people from receiving - and delivering - quality primary healthcare. We are conducting research that aims to understand the experiences, or lack thereof, of GPs in providing care to trans and gender diverse people. Taking part in this research will provide key information that will contribute to improving primary healthcare for trans and gender diverse people in Aotearoa New Zealand and support you and other GPs in providing this care.
What would be involved? This would involve meeting with the primary researcher on this project (Sandra, a PhD student at Victoria University of Wellington) and talking to her about your experience, or lack thereof, with primary healthcare provision to trans and gender diverse people. As this is about your own experiences/opinions there are no right or wrong answers. No prior experience in providing care for trans and gender diverse people is required. Before we start, I will ask you to provide some demographic information and sign a consent form. The interview should take approximately 30 minutes and will be voice recorded (either in person or via zoom). To acknowledge your contribution, you will receive a $20 voucher.
Are you interested, or would you like to know more? Please contact Sandra Souto Pereira
(Sandra.firstname.lastname@example.org or 027 6406932) or follow this link https://forms.gle/VPZdpgVA4364Bbnf6 I’d love to hear from you!
This research has been approved by the Victoria University of Wellington Human Ethics Committee reference number 0000029589
The website https://sexualviolence.victimsinfo.govt.nz/ was created by the Ministry of Justice to help victim/survivors of sexual violence (and their friends, family and whānau) understand the reporting, investigation and court process. The website was developed in partnership with victim/survivors, specialist sexual violence services, Police and Justice staff.
The website provides pivotal information about reporting and the court process should it be needed or of interest. You will find that the site and its video resources are available in English and Te Reo Māori and that the site has quick exit functionality. The website also debunks common misconceptions about sexual harm, along with the differing forms it can take.
I have attached (should it be appropriate or needed) a printable pdf of the court process. We also currently have wallet cards (reference attached) available free of charge. The thinking behind this is that it could be something for people to discreetly pick up in reception, and/or for nurses to hand out as needed.
If this is something that your health practice/s would be interested in, please contact
