Heh, you have failed to pay attention to the earlier postings that healthcare funding has increased under National by a higher percentage than the prior Labour Government.
You've also failed to take into account that Labour cut *500* Million of it's promised funding from the healthcare budget in order to pay Winstons ransom. (Yet another broken promise, which I think I'm going to coin as #YABPbL). As someone with close ties to the medical community, I can tell you a lot of Doctors voted Labour soley for the extra funding that they would be getting, and those doctors are now frothing at the mouth angry over that broken promise.
It's worth noting that National had promised to increase funding this term.
Also worth noting, is that Labour is increasing GP Workloads significantly over the coming 6 years whilst compensating them by a ridiculously smaller amount.
Hardly the glowing investment in Healthcare is it?
Welcome back. I wasn't actually trying to do a National vs Labour thing here, just pointing out that there is some substance to the allegations of ongoing chronic underfunding. That doesn't necessarily mean there hasn't been any funding, just not what is needed to keep the health system going.
Nonsense..you can't help yourself. How many totally new hospitals have been built in the last decade? I can think of Wellington, Southland and the green light given for Dunedin. Probably missing some.
