The new Health Minister is not ruling out cutting fat at Canterbury District Health Board to better use the taxpayer's health dollar.

Andrew Little will today tour the new Waipapa hospital facilities and meet with the District Health Board's executive team.

He told Chris Lynch there's always going to a level of administration required but he's heard the health sector's criticisms about adding more and more managers.

Minister Little says it's important to ensure the health dollar is going where it needs to go but he says people are the priority.
