    Long waiting lists and sub-standard health care could become a reality at general practices and medical centres across the country


    A recent survey by the Nurses Organisation has found 70 percent of respondents are considering leaving the sector because of higher pay elsewhere - such as at services run by DHBs.

    Kerikeri GP Chris Reid says the lack of pay parity is affecting staff numbers.
