The policy covers a wide range of health issues but the party has particularly highlighted that they will increase funding to PHARMAC meaning better access to medicine, institute an elective surgery commitment, provide quicker cancer diagnosis and management, AND add to the general practice primary care team. The party has also rejected aspects of the New Zealand Health and Disability Sector Review which was led by civil servant Heather Simpson and released midway through this year.
