This week for our catchup with Dr Reti, the discussion centred around the National Party’s plans to reinstate prescription fees on medicines.
The plan has come under fire after a survey of pharmacists across Aotearoa showed that a majority were not in favour of reinstating prescription fees.
Respondents to the survey cited better patient accessibility and interaction as reasons to not reinstate the former co-pay system.
Nicholas also asked Dr Reti about Labour Leader Chris Hipkins recent decision to back calls for a ceasefire in Gaza.
Nicholas began by asking Dr Reti about the reasoning behind reintroducing prescription fees.
