Incentives for GP clinics to test for covid 19

Gregory Soar made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Gregory Soar to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Gregory Soar

Dear Ministry of Health,

Are private medical clinics being given or paid any form of incentives including monetary for vaccinating people for covid 19?

The reason for asking is my clinic says they are not permitted to see me in person until level 2 and that they are very busy.

Yours faithfully,

Gregory Soar
