Southland DHB Chief defends endoscopy services

Ryan Bridge 26/07/2019

Dr Nigel Millar, Chief Medical Officer of Southland DHB joins Ryan Bridge to discuss the report by Dr Philip Bagshaw which criticised the DHB saying, “they’ve lost the war on cancer.”

Dr Millar tells Ryan that they will be commissioning to look at more cases to find out more about the situation. He denies that this is bigger than it seems and that there  are not many more cases.

I don’t think this is the tip of the iceberg.

He defends the Southland DHB saying that they “have responded as soon as we got the information.”
