National Travel Assistance Scheme

Posted on by

We are all aware that access to health services in Aotearoa is inequitable especially regarding ethnicity and rurality. The National Travel Assistance Scheme started in 2005 to provide financial help for those having to travel far to receive specialist care. In this literature review, undertaken through an Otago Medical School Deans Research Scholarship, third-year medical student, Lucy Maher, describes what is known about the NTA scheme and identified significant knowledge gaps that pose numerous questions for future research.

Thanks Lucy – great work, enjoy your gap year!
