Also drawing on a wide range of commentators we delve into the political and philosophical issues facing the health sector.

New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards 

The New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards | He Tohu Mauri Ora showcase innovation, collaboration and superlative outcomes in the primary healthcare sector. 


A strong primary care sector is crucial to a successful New Zealand health system, providing great care for patients and a great work environment.  


The Health Media and the Pharmacy Guild believe the awards will encourage collaboration and innovation in primary care, and allow the healthcare sector in general, and the public, to see how hard primary care practitioners work to improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders, and keep them out of the secondary care (hospital) system.
