Free after hours care for under sixes
Grey Power Federation Press Release
FREE AFTER-HOURS CARE FOR UNDER SIXE YEAR OLDS
Grey Power welcomes the Press announcement that the free visits to the doctor for children aged under six will be extended to after-hours.
“Mr Ryall has stated in his press release that his “government is committed to giving young children the best possible access to health care” and that these visits “will also help slow the numbers of young children presenting to our busy hospital emergency departments with illnesses their GP clinic could have treated”. Grey Power feels it is important for Government to address the health needs of the very vulnerable in our society and the added spin-off of freeing up emergency room space will be appreciated by all New Zealanders.”
