Southern DHB issue counter proposal

The Health Minister has received a counter proposal from the Southern District Health Board - over the looming threat of installing a commissioner.

Late last month the board received a letter from Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman over his concerns about SDHB's performance.

It centred around the financial performance of the DHB, which is set to record a deficit of around $27 million at the end of this financial year.

A spokesperson from Dr Coleman's office says he received a response from the board yesterday.

He will consider it carefully before making a decision, but there is no timeframe for how long that will take.
