Free primary health care
Make primary health care free for all. More services are being pushed into primary healthcare and there is a desire to promote early intervention, as well as to reduce waiting times. If necessary change the primary healthcare model to enable this to happen. Eg as fewer doctors want to run GP businesses, maybe Te Whata Ora needs to open its own primary healthcare services in underserved areas
Why the contribution is important
Free primary health care will reduce demand on emergency rooms, reduce the burden of disease and promote equity.
