John Key told the ODT he’s determined to implement the 100 day programme the National party campaigned on.
That includes the tax package, RMA reform, literacy and numeracy standards in education and he also wants more accountability in health:
The Ministry of Health and district health boards would be instructed to halt the growth in health bureaucracy and open their books on the true state of hospital waiting lists and the crisis in services.
The opening of books won’t be pretty if yesterday’s story from the Otago District Health Board is anything to go on. It’s facing a $13 million deficit.
