The Ministry of Health is currently consulting on a draft Health of Older People Strategy and that includes an online forum where people can make their views known.
The document sets out a draft national strategy for the health and wellbeing of older people for the next 10 years. Its vision is that older people live well, age well, and have a respectful end of life in age-friendly communities.
The forum is another way for people to provide feedback, besides the traditional formal submissions on the draft strategy. All forum comments will count towards the consultation outcome.
Health ageing involves people of all ages, and if you know anyone who would be interested in commenting online, please tell them about the forum and how to access it at:
The consultation closes on 7 September.
