Te Whatu Ora is standing by its $100 million consultant spend. 

This is despite it dropping from $139 million the year prior. 

Chief People Officer Andrew Slater told the Mike Hosking Breakfast they've tightened where they're using contractors and consultants and are focusing on making sure they have the appropriate expertise. 

He says it doesn't make sense to have some of these skills in house all the time. 

Former Chair of Te Whatu Ora, Rob Campbell, says the consultant spend is still excessive. He joined Kerre Woodham to discuss the situation.
