Access to Care Programme

Promote early intervention through greater Māori engagement in Primary Care.

The focus for Primary Health Care continues to be increasing PHO enrolment to improve access to primary care services to enable early intervention and reduce health disparities between Māori and non-Māori.

Plans to lift numbers include: strengthening links between LMCs, Tamariki Ora and general practices to encourage parents of newborn babies to enrol their tamariki with a GP or WellChild/Tamariki provider, community events to promote engagement, and delivering cultural competency training to general practice teams.​
