An Australian-born GP based in Lower Hutt has decided to return to her home country, and she's blaming New Zealand's 'broken' healthcare system. 

Corinne Glenn wrote an opinion piece for The Spinoff describing these issues. The piece states that healthcare funding needs to start with primary care, which has been neglected for the past decade.

Corinne says that she wants to stay committed to her role as a GP, and moving back to Australia is the better option, because she can no longer do her job effectively in New Zealand due to lack of funding.
