South Link Health (SLH) says it found out through reading the
Otago Daily Times that the Southern District Health
Board had called in a forensic accountant over what the
Dunedin-based independent practitioner association believed
until this week was a commercial dispute.
The Southern District Health Board was told in 2010 its
multimillion-dollar dispute with South Link Health (SLH)
might be fraud, but the dispute was not referred to police,
board chairman Joe Butterfield has revealed.
