Our entire health system is due for an overhaul – and submissions are due by 9 December.
There are so many huge changes happening at present it is hard to keep on top, but it is also important to express local voices and concerns. Will you make a submission? Even a short one

The Green Party have put out a submission guide here which may help
Here are some of the things Rosemary Neave thinks are important to raise
- there is a lot of submissions against Maori having control over their own health. The health system has failed Maori badly, we need to address this. Let’s support, empower and fund iwi-led outcomes
- Strengthen primary health care
- Concern over nationalising of health planning – we need structures that will listen to, and collaborate with local communities.
