Reorienting the New Zealand health care system to meet the challenge of long-term conditions in a fiscally constrained environment
The New Zealand Universities Graduates Association (NZUGA) is having a buffet supper in the penthouse of New Zealand house on the evening of Friday 8 April 2016. The event is open to all to attend and features a talk from Prof Nicholas Mays, Professor of Health Policy and Director, Policy Innovation Research Unity of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Nicholas is also a health policy advisor to NZ government.
Internationally the healthcare community faces the challenge of continuing to provide the range and type of services currently available (or better), without incurring excessive levels of taxes and/or debt. Nicholas will discuss how New Zealand is placed in the context of this challenge.
The address will follow an informal supper and brief AGM. Admittance is at a charge of £20 per person. If paid in advance a discount of £2 (i.e. price £18 each) will apply and includes buffet. Please arrive between 6:15 pm and 7:00 pm. Advance booking is required as space is limited.
The event is open to all; members, non-members and non-graduates are all equally welcome.
