Go to Meetings

  • Look out for meetings and forums, organise a get-together yourself or join with others
  • Attend community events and be prepared to ask the political speakers what they and/or their Party are doing about the palliative care challenge facing Aotearoa New Zealand.
  • Look out for online discussions or virtual events – these are another great opportunity for you to ask questions.

You could possibly ask questions like:

  • Hospice’s future is uncertain due to a lack of funding. This essential service has been under-valued and under-recognised by successive governments. What will you do to ensure local hospices are still there for patients and whānau?
  • What planning is underway to ensure all nurses receive fair and equitable pay across the health system?
  • By 2040, it is predicted the number of people needing palliative care will more than double.
  • How will you plan to address the high future demand for hospice and palliative care?


If the response is positive, thank the politician/candidate for their support.

If there is disagreement, or the MP/candidate doesn’t seem to know/care about the unsustainable future facing hospice, let us know and we’ll do our best to contact them.
