The aim of the National Primary Medical Care Survey (NatMedCa) is to describe primary medical care in New Zealand, including the characteristics of providers and the practices they work in, the patients they see, the problems they manage and the investigation and treatment that they offer. The study included private general practices, community-governed (CG) providers, Māori providers, Accident and Medical (A&M) clinics and Emergency Departments.

This report presents findings describing the experiences of Māori patients during their visits to doctors.
