Surgeons to focus on use of resources

Access to surgery and the best use of surgical resources will be the focus of more than 90 leading surgeons and other health professionals meeting in Queenstown.

The New Zealand scientific meeting of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons on Thursday and Friday will be opened by Health Minister Jonathan Coleman, who will outline his priorities and vision for the health sector.

Dr Lance O'Sullivan, the 2014 New Zealander of the Year whose initiatives include the low-cost health clinic Te Kohanga Whakaora, is among the guest speakers.
