Consumer Council Meeting – May 2019
The priority plan for this month’s hui is eliminating health inequities for people in rural communities. Members discussed the various issues and challenges faced by the rural communities when access to healthcare is needed. It was suggested that geographical mapping of available data would be useful to get a better understanding of rural health needs. A kōrero with Waikato DHB is planned for the next meeting to get a sense of what the Council see as the priorities in this space.
