The Neurological Alliance, with Rare Disorders NZ's support, sent two letters on Monday 3 October on the Alliance's position in relation to the Health Reforms, the new health system and engagement.

The first letter was to Minister Little, expressing frustration about the lack of engagement with Health NZ, and seeking a meeting with him to start the kōrero to ensure the future outcomes in the new health system deliver for those impacted by a neurological condition, including their supporting whānau.

About the Neurological Alliance

The Neurological Alliance was established in 1999 to provide a forum for organisations representing a neurological disease to work together and make representations on matters of common interest. All members have a common desire to promote community awareness of neurological diseases and to see that the needs of people with neurological conditions are met.
