ACC Carpal Tunnel Syndrome claims 2015-2020

I am looking for the number of Carpal Tunnel syndrome (CTS) claims made in the time period 2015-2020, number of declined CTS referrals, including geographic and demographic details (i.e age/gender/location within NZ)

I am a Clinical Editor working with Health Pathways in SDHB, we are currently analyzing this pathway (Carpal Tunnel syndrome patients) for patients with a view to improving the service and information available to GP and patient handouts

The project Team are unsure how large the problem of Carpal Tunnel syndrome is within the population, as some are managed by MOH and some by ACC. We are unsure of the number of declined referrals by ACC. Having this information will also help inform the need for sufficient workforce ( Surgeons, PT's and ancillary staff) in the public space.
