What’s it like, preparing to work in a health system that doesn’t do right by your own people? Trainee doctor Emma Espiner goes to Porirua to meet the Wallace whānau and hear about a night in ED that changed their lives. Emma talks about that story and some of the themes it raises, with Curtis Walker, the first Māori chair of the NZ Medical Council, and South Auckland GP and Waitangi Tribunal claimant Dr Rawiri Jansen.
