From Midday Report, 12:13 pm on 20 October 2021

The government this morning announced plans to change the way managed isolation is co-ordinated for health workers, guaranteeing 300 spots a month for the health and disability sector.

Health Minister Andrew Little says Aotearoa needs to get health workers into the country, whether they are returning New Zealanders or doctors and nurses coming in from other countries.

Māni Dunlop spoke to Sarah Dalton from the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists about the change.
