The government has allocated $200 million to improve health care in South Auckland but health leaders say it is only the beginning of what's needed.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the Health Minister David Clark announced the funding at the Manukau Super Clinic, which carries out a lot of the region's out patient appointments.

But even they acknowledged much more is needed to get the system there into shape.
