From Morning Report, 7:43 am on 12 April 2023

The Opposition leader says much needed health workers won't make it here in time for winter. 

The government yesterday announced it was adding 32 healthcare roles to its Green List immigration fast track.

National's Christopher Luxon told Morning Report they've been calling for the move for the best part of the year.

Luxon says the country must also figure out how to retain health workers.
