Operations down

In response to a story that elective operations in Wellington had decreased by a fifth in the past four years, despite an extra $3 billion being pumped into the health service in that time, the Government has blamed the stats for being incomplete.

I’m not sure what is more disturbing. The fact that a 50% increase in health funding is not leading to any significant increase in operations, or the fact that the Government is unable to even accurately record how many operations are being done.
