Hui to scope health kaupapa Waitangi claim
About 150 Maori medical practitioners, doctors, nurses, medical graduates and others are expected in Rotorua this weekend at national hui to discuss what should be covered in the Waitangi Tribunal’s Health Services and Outcomes Inquiry.
The health kaupapa inquiry will seek to identify and address nationally significant claims that affect all Maori, and redress any systemic problems.
In a recent memorandum Judge Stephen Clark said there were 181 claims lodged, with more coming in each week.
He hopes this weekend’s hui will identify priorities.
The tribunal has already decided the first stage of the inquiry will cover the primary healthcare framework.
The hui and the inquiry are seen as steps towards Maori-designed, Maori-developed and Maori-implemented services and outcomes.
