    National's telling the Government to pull the plug on its review of District Health Boards...before any more money gets wasted

    National's telling the Government to pull the plug on its review of District Health Boards...before any more money gets wasted


    Health spokesman Dr Shane Reti says the review already has 25 people on its payroll, and a budget of five million dollars.

    He says the funding will never directly benefit patients.

    Dr Reti says instead of spending millions on unnecessarily amalgamating DHBs, the money would be better spent on medicines.
