Re: goodbye health system

we have something like 20 district health boards in a country that is the size (population) of city of Sydney or the entire population of the state of North Carolina.

In a country of only a few million people we don't have a national health system: We have 20 regional or district boards. Each board has around 11 members.

how much do they get paid?

Why, that's why we can't afford to hire doctors, nurses, cleaners. That's why the people don't have access to medications or procedures. Because by the time they take their cut there isn't any money left.

What do they do all day?

They 'bargain' between themselves (some people are on the district health board of more than one region) for the provision of services. So one district health board might contract out colonoscopy to another district health board, for example. Because they don't have colonscopists.

Since they don't want to pay doctors (or nurses or cleaners) and they don't want to pay for medications... We have things like pharmac so we can tell our people that 'we couldn't get that from the nasty drug companies' (when we basically refused to pay a price that was fair in favor of pay increases for the board).

If people want to come here and pass themselves off as doctors... For minimum pay... Why, we are keen to have cheapest doctors ever!

The worse their reputation overseas the cheaper they are for us to hire.

If they are bad enough (and come from rich enough family) they can basically pay us to come here and do whatever they want to our people.

We are a very attractive tourist destination, indeed.

It makes it impossible to do good work, here.

Because of the grubby grubby grub grub people who insist on being head of the tribe for as long as they can get away with it grubbing up all the money grubby grub grubbity grub grub while ensuring NZ only ever develops backwards.

F*ck*ng sh*t show.
