Supporting the primary care sector 

A strong primary care sector is crucial to a successful New Zealand health system, providing great care for patients and a great work environment.   

The Health Media and the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand believe the awards will encourage collaboration and innovation in primary care, and allow the healthcare sector and the public to see how hard primary care practitioners work to improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders and keep them out of the secondary care (hospital) system.  

The collective aim is to improve access, health and wellbeing outcomes for Māori and non-Māori alike, and the awards celebrate the work that is already happening to encourage further collaboration.   

Awards gala dinner 

Winners will be honoured at a glittering black-tie gala at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland on 15 May 2021. The night will celebrate and showcase the best of the best across primary healthcare in Aotearoa. It’s the perfect opportunity to socialise and network with your colleagues across the primary healthcare sector, so buy your tickets today by emailing Emma Houltham:
