Find out about the support being put in place to assist primary care during this winter's cold and flu season, including:

  • Monkeypox – it’s here, so how do we manage it?  
  • An update on what the winter modelling is telling us 
  • Changes being made to help people with mild symptoms to obtain information and advice, in the first instance, from Healthline, Health Navigator NZ, and pharmacies.

The NRHCC panel will talk about the cascading level of care, including self-help online and self-care, virtual care via Healthline, face-to-face or virtual care via pharmacies, general practice or urgent care/after-hours.
