DoP March 2009, Wellington 196pp Softcover Celebrating 20 years of community-led health care. "This book provides a rare insight into a holistic service, demonstrating that health care is accessible and appropriate to all members of a community when a broad range of community members have a say in how the service is managed and planned." To celebrate 20 years of community-led health care, Newtown Union Health Service is proud to present Health for the People. "The service is a leader in the continued reorientation of primary health care. Many of the 'new initiatives' currently being rolled out as part of the primary health care strategy are the way we have been working throughout our first 20 years. "It is fantastic that the NUH's way has had national recognition as the way to deliver quality, affordable health care with the local community firmly in the driver's seat..."This book will enable you to share in these experiences and find inspiration in what you discover." Toby Regan Chairperson.
