‘No more cuts’ rally planned

SHARE

The mayor may call for a public demonstration to send a strong message to the Southern District Health Board commissioner that Oamaru values its health services.

Waitaki Mayor Gary Kircher has teamed up with councillor Melanie Tavendale to organise a rally following Health Minister Jonathan Coleman’s decision to sack the Southern District Health Board (SDHB).

On June 17, the SDHB was informed it would be replaced by commissioner Cathy Grant and deputies Richard Thomson and Graham Crombie to resolve serious financial problems.
