Grab some popcorn, hit the couch; The Health Media is launching a new way to talk about key issues in health – The Popcorn Panels.
And the first topic up for discussion is the recently delivered Health and Disability System Review panel report, aka the Simpson report.
Join the editor of New Zealand Doctor|Rata Aotearoa, Barbara Fountain, and panellists for an hour on Zoom as they chat and take questions from the audience about the direction the health sector might be taking and where you might fit into the picture.
Four panels are planned for “The Popcorn Panels: Chatting about the Simpson report” and the topic for the first panel on Tuesday 14 July, 7pm “Beyond PHOs - coming to a locality near you”.
Taking part in the first Popcorn Panel are Tū Ora Compass Health chief executive Martin Hefford, Temuka GP Bryan Moore and Victoria University health services researcher Jackie Cumming.
The panels are free to attend but it is necessary to register at https://www.thehealthmedia.co.nz/popcorn-panels
While you are there, you can check out details for the further three panels planned in this series: Why not? A Māori health commissioning authority (16 July, 7pm), General practice – missing in action (21 July, 7pm) and Health NZ and super-sized DHBs – déjà vu? (23 July, 7pm)
