Your Health Link Website Warning

This warning and the Your Health Link Website Terms of Use govern your use of the Your Health Link Website (the Site).

The Mid North Coast Local Health District is committed to enhancing the public availability, dissemination and exchange of health information. To that end, the Site has been established as an entry point to assist you to quickly and easily access information on the internet in relation to topics of relevance to our Community.

The Site is made up of, for the most part, hypertext links to internet sites which contain information collated and presented by government agencies, third-party organisations and individuals (Linked Sites).

The providers of the Linked Sites often have their own protocols and standards in relation to their sites and the information which appears on them. We urge you to familiarise yourself with these protocols and standards since the Mid North Coast Local Health District does not warrant or represent that the Linked Sites are complete, current, reliable and/or free from error. Except as required by law, the Mid North Coast Local Health District is not responsible or liable for any loss, damage, cost or expense you might incur as a result of the use of or reliance upon the materials which appear at the Linked Sites.

You must take your own precautions for ensuring that accessing the Site or any Linked Sites does not expose you to the risk of viruses, malicious computer code or other forms of interference which may damage your own computer system.  Except as required by law, Mid North Coast Local Health District is not liable for any interference or damage to your computer system which arises in connection with your use of this Site or the Linked Sites.
