Hospice Briefing to New Government Asks Luxon to Honour his Pledge to Boost Funding

“We’ll look at boosting funding for palliative care once we are in government” This is the pledge Christopher Luxon made when announcing National’s health policies pre- Election.  We intend to make sure the new PM stands by this commitment so we’ve highlighted it up front in our Briefing to the new Minister of Health, Hon Dr Shane Reti.

This Ministerial Briefing focuses on what value the hospice sector delivers to communities and why we should work together to secure the benefits of palliative care for all New Zealanders.  We name three things we need from this government.  Pay Parity for hospice staff, Support to develop a business case for a fairer funding model (for inclusion in Budget 2024), and Regular engagement to keep things aligned and on track.  We are looking forward to a meeting with Minister Reti in the New Year, along with the new Associate Ministers of Health Hon Matt Doocey and  Hon Casey Costello.
