Where can I find out about New Zealand’s health system and services?

There are many different health and disability services including doctors, pharmacies and hospitals. 

Some services receive government funding for eligible people to receive free inpatient and outpatient public hospital services, subsidies on prescription items and support services for people with disabilities.

The health section of the New Zealand Now has more about the health system. If you are visiting or working in New Zealand, and want to know more about your eligibility for health services, refer to the Ministry of Health website.
