The guidance is to assist the health workforce to understand and respond to the new changes. It complements the guidance on sharing information safely, and supporting resources, published by Oranga Tamariki and the Ministry of Justice.

All health workers whether they work in government or non-government organisations, in hospitals or the community, or in primary, secondary or tertiary care need to understand how to share and request information safely.
