www.yourlocaldoctor.co.nz - An enrolment drive for Auckland’s new migrant communities
The website of ‘your local doctor’ helps address the lack of understanding of the New Zealand healthcare system among new migrants particularly from Asian countries. The lack of awareness, exacerbated by language barriers, contributes to the lower General Practice enrolment rate among residents, e.g. people grouped as ‘Asian’ in the Auckland region. The website will help people to understand the importance of having a family doctor and use the primary care services for better health outcomes and experiences. This website has contents of ‘why enrol’, ‘where should I go’, ‘find a doctor’, useful links, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and case studies in three languages, English, Simplified Chinese and Korean.
This site was originally developed by the Waitemata Asian PHO Enrolment Working Group, which was set up in February 2011 to address PHO enrolment rates in the Waitemata district (northern and western Auckland). Its members are comprised of representatives from settlement support agencies, NGO providers, immigration networks, primary and secondary care and the Funding & Planning departments of DHBs. The updated website (May, 2016) has been refreshed by the Auckland Regional Asian & MELAA Primary Care Working Group.
