Speech from the Throne

Health Funding

“This will be a government of transformation... it will restore funding to education and the health systems to allow access for all, it will protect the environment and take action on climate change, and it will build a truly prosperous nation and a fair society, together.”

Failed to deliver.

In fact, in the most tangible area the general public benchmark health outcomes on, things have gotten worse. Elective surgeries have dropped by 6000 under this Government, the first drop in a decade. In the year to June 2019, 18 of 20 DHBs did fewer elective surgeries than the previous year. 

Labour is a terrible manager of health.  They were through the 2000s and they’re just as bad now.
