It is "just silly" the now-defunct Mental Health Commission
spent $346,800 on a single outside contractor during 2011-12
to develop a mental health plan, Labour MP and mental health
spokesman Iain Lees-Galloway says.
The Southern District Health Board is yet to appoint someone
to, or externally advertise, the position of Dunedin Hospital
emergency department (ED) clinical leader, despite the
position having been vacant for several months.
