A funding wrangle between southern health institutions
believed to involve millions of dollars shows no sign of
being resolved more than two years after being referred to
the Ministry of Health's business unit.
The Southern District Health Board will only get out of its
''awful bind'' if it stops wasting money through
inefficiency, and then makes a case for serious investment,
intensive care clinical leader Mike Hunter says.
The Southern District Health Board has released figures
showing $17,156 of expenses relating to the first six months
of the secondment of a senior Wellington health manager to
assist the southern board's surgical department.
