Community and team, how we work together, is critically important to the success of healthcare. Over the last two years whether working in a small practice team, as the medical provider in a community, or as part of the team of five million, we’ve learnt that we can’t – and shouldn’t – feel that we’re alone. By weaving together and being connected we use our collective strength to do more, be more, and achieve success in a way that needs to be sustainable. As a profession we’ve dug deep; we’ve been resilient; we’ve served.
General practice has never been more important, more appreciated, but more under threat than now. In these times of enormous change and disruption, strengthening community medicine as the heart, mind and spirit for the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders is fundamental.
