Patient Information

No identifiable patient information should be uploaded, following the relevant NZ medical council policies. Direct publication of patient information is not allowed. Unidentifiable imaging, such an unlabeled xray, is allowed if it can not reasonably be able to be linked back to a certain person. Case histories are allowed but all identifiable information must be removed as is expected of any medical publication. If in doubt do not publish the information.
