Four weeks until the Annual Waitangi Symposium...

There are only four weeks to go until the annual Waitangi Symposium on Saturday October the 17th. This year the focus is on the future of general practice in Northland. GPs and practice nurses attending the symposium have the opportunity to question the CEOs of the DHB and PHOs on the future of general practice in Northland. In a separate panel discussion the question of funding for after hours, in particular of rural general practice, will be debated. The remainder of the symposium consists of a series of practice changing updates from invited GPs and Specialists.
