    Proposed Smart Health App costs Waikato DHB’s $25.7 million no wonder these DHB’s can’t balance their books and can’t afford to do operations. We have got some right ones running these organisations ?

    • In Vino 2.1

      I have just undergone surgery at Waikato, and have nothing but praise and gratitude for all the medical staff. But I may have been lucky not to have had my operation bumped off down the list because of all the malpractice by incompetent and corrupt bureaucrats imported in the DHBs. How about we go back to letting medical people who understand the problems run the system, rather than importing outside Business and Human Resource (yuk!) experts (sarc) who stuff things up, and often cheat?

      • Grafton Gully 2.1.1

        Privatise and run it for profit or in the case of partnerships, maximise the annual takings after expenses. But this would mean laying off thousands of aspirational Kiwi mums and dads supported in bullshit jobs by Vote Health – a from of “middle class welfare” if you like.

        • In Vino

          Bollocks. Privatisation brings in exactly the problem I described above. Privatisation allows that eternal plague to thrive – the unproductive middleman with glib talk.

            “… nicely captured in this passage (Claudia represents the funding agency, a Regional Health Authority (RHA), one of the institutions deeply involved in the implementation.)

            ‘And you think I’ll tell somebody with a new cancer that we can’t treat him because of an externality do you?’ Cassidy laughed. ‘I don’t think so. No Paxton doctor would do that’.

            ‘Why not.’

            ‘Because it would be immoral. And unethical. And unfair … don’t you agree?’

            She chewed for a moment . ‘I don’t have an opinion on it.’

            “What? How can you not have an opinion on something as important as that?’

            My job is to make sure the RHA is protected from risk,’ said Claudia, ‘and that’s what I do. If they had employed me to debate ethics I would, but they didn’t so I don’t.’”

        • Sanctuary

          Let me guess Grafton Gully, you are 72 and last had an original thought in 1981?

          Now sod off. Your thinking is 20 years out of fashion and everyone is rolling their eyes.

    What an idiot!

    Here is Trump supposedly stoking up support for the Mid Term Elections..

    President Trump: “Your vote in 2018 is every bit as important as your vote in 2016. Although I’m not sure I really believe that…I don’t know who the hell wrote that line.”

    In Trump’s world there is no higher calling than serving himself.

    Of course he is right. There is no need for his supporters to vote.
