Racism in Māori healthcare: Northland GP urges fight against bias

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 2 August 2019

A Northland GP is urging the DHB to publicly declare war on systemic racism.

Kyle Eggleton says the Auckland DHB has led the way by admitting institutional racism is a barrier to Māori health - and vowing to eliminate it.

He says Northland DHB has the highest percentage of Māori patients - and is silent.

RNZ Northland reporter Lois Williams has the story.
