The "Federation" truly is farcical! How can you claim to represent Primary Care when there is absolutely NO voice of General Practice in the mix, it's like something out of Monty Python! Did they seriously think that nobody would notice (and I'm sorry Jeff Lowe but GPNZ represents PHOs). Why is there so much PHO representation on it???
This is an organisation set up by PHOs for PHOs, it's bloody nuts! Maybe General Practice would do well to steer clear of it...
Good Lord we need an ASMS.
I mean no disrespect to the New Zealand Breast Feeding Alliance, but 3500 New Zealand GPs are not worthy to be even in the same room? FFS! NZMA are you alive? College? What do you say?
Treating 23,500 elective day surgery patients in rural New Zealand is just part of the story. Education, training and workshops to support rural doctors and nurses is leaving a much bigger footprint
