Recruit dietitian and counselor in primary health organization

According to my perception, there are so many things and habits that need to change to make healthy futures to a large extent. I feel that in every primary health organization, there should be a counselor and a dietitian who can advise the people about healthy diet, exercise, quit drinking alcohol and there should not be a fee for advise, because there are a number of people who don't want to pay a fee to visit these specialists. In addition there are many people who don't know the side effects of too much alcohol drinking and even they don't have knowledge about the benefits of drinking enough water. As our habits play a crucial role to prevent many diseases and improve our immunity to fight against infections.

Why the contribution is important

To enhance the knowledge as well as improve the health status of people.

    Dietitians should be in every primary care facility in nz. There is NZ data on how this could decrease the burden on Gp and practice nurses. In the UK there are First Dietitian appointments which could be for many health challenges including Diabetes (& pre diabetes), perimenopause, IBS, unintentional weight loss/malnutrition, nutrition concerns in pregnancy and for young families (fussy eating in children) to name a few. This skilled health workforce already has limited prescribing rights and with appropriate expansion of this would supplement The existing workforce better.

    Dieticians and trained naturopaths should be attached to every medical centre.
    So many problems could be treated and even alleviated by changes in diet and behaviour
