Rural Lives At Risk

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:11 pm on 29 May 2017

A rural health leader says the lives of rural New Zealanders are at risk, and has called on government to help remove barriers to improve health services. The Rural Health Alliance of Aotearoa New Zealand says rural people’s health needs to be considered just as important as those who live in cities. But poor connectivity and inequitable health services aren't helping. Dr Martin London is the chair of the alliance.
