Govt is sitting on health report: Labour

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/06/2017

Labour says the government is sitting on a performance report that presents a "less than glowing" picture of the Ministry of Health.

Paula Rebstock wrote the performance review report for the State Services Commission and it's in draft form.

In parliament, Labour's David Clark asked Health Minister Jonathan Coleman what was in it.

"The review report is in the process of being drafted... the final report is months away," Dr Coleman said.

Under further questioning, he said he was "aware of a draft copy" but Dr Clark was wasting time asking about it because it wasn't ready.

Dr Clark later issued a statement saying the report was "less than glowing about the ministry and its financial management".

"The minister wants changes to the report as he is clearly not happy with it," he said.
