Rethinking Health

Dr Lance O'Sullivan has been campaigning for change in the health sector to improve health outcomes for Māori and those he feels have been under-served for generations. His newly established clinic "Mai Health" in Kaitaia brings together his experience and the values he believes will make a difference.
