Professor Paul Worley is in Blenheim for the NZRGPN National Rural Health Conference – hear him on RNZ

Professor Paul Worley is Australia’s inaugural Rural Health Commissioner – a role that was established in 2017. He was tasked with improving the healthcare of rural and remote communities. In this country, a quarter of all rural medical practices are short of a GP and many of those who remain are nearing retirement age. He talks to Kathryn Ryan about how New Zealand can meet the challenge.
