Consumer Council Meeting - April 2019
The priority plan for this month’s hui is eliminating health inequities for Māori. Members agreed there is significant evidence that there is inequity in our health system, impacting Māori and other minority groups leading to poorer outcomes. Members also agreed they were in an ideal position to raise this issue and ensure that equity is addressed. Further discussion with Waikato DHB is planned for future meetings. Following updates provided in last month’s hui about the Health System Plan, members are focusing their effort to support the consultation process.
