Network named as finalist in inaugural NZ Primary Healthcare Awards

An NZRGPN designed and driven programme to encourage rural school students to take up rural health careers is one of two finalists in the Research and Education category at the first-ever New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards.

Award winners will be announced at a formal, black-tie ceremony in Auckland on 29 February.

“I’m absolutely delighted that the NZRGPN has been confirmed as a finalist in the inaugural New Zealand Primary Healthcare Awards,” said Chief Executive Dalton Kelly.

“I’m really proud of the team for this acknowledgment. It recognises how, led by Rural Health Careers Programme Manager, Esther Maxim, we have really started to get some traction in encouraging rural students into healthcare careers.”
