Ministry Withholds Funds

F_R_MOHealthThe government has withheld a small amount of funding  for the ‘More Health Checks and Diabetes Health Checks’ scheme as the required numbers were not achieved. Although it is a small amount it is a signal of what can happens when a health provider fails to meet its target and will result in some changes to the programme in the hope that the target will be met in the future.

Although appreciating the need to perform well the Otaki Mail thinks this approach from the Ministry of Health is a bit churlish!
