A group set up to provide advice to doctors on how to treat common disorders says it is to wind-up its work.
The Guidelines Group was set up in 1999 to promote best practice in healthcare by producing recommendations for doctors.
But it lost a $590,000 contract with the Ministry of Health this year.
It failed to gain other contracts after hearing in June it was to lose that contract.
Chairman Jim Vause said a special board meeting on Tuesday decided to begin liquidation.
He said this will likely be confirmed at another meeting in a month.
The ministry has said the group's work is now largely done by other agencies.
