Presbyterian Support Otago is seeking legal advice to
challenge the Southern District Health Board's decision to
dump the organisation as a home support provider, the
organisation's chief executive says.
Presbyterian Support Otago (PSO) has suffered a ''huge
shock'' from being dumped as the provider of a $5.5 million
annual contract providing home-based services to older
people, chief executive Gillian Bremner says.
Posting an operating loss of $110,000 indicated just how
challenged Presbyterian Support Otago is as demand for its
services grows and income tightens, board corporate and
finance committee chairman Ray Macleod said.
