Treasury report a "Pearl Harbour attack"

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 19 July 2017

Senior specialists at the Canterbury District Health Board have come out in strong support of the DHB's board and management in the war of words with the government. This follows a scathing report by Treasury published without warning on its website last week, accusing the board of ineffective financial management, and using manipulative strategies to gain additional funding. Kathryn Ryan talks to Christchurch Hospitals' Medical Staff Association deputy chair Dr Alistair Humphrey, who has likened the Treasury documents to a 'Pearl Harbour' attack.
