The ABC has a story on the COAG reform council finding the ACT is the worst performing jurisdiction for elective surgery.
This is going to cost the ACT nearly a million dollars in bonus funding.
Chief Minister Gallagher is complaining about the unfairness of it all:
Ms Gallagher says she has told Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon she thinks the system is unfair.
“I did write to Nicola Roxon saying when you look at how we performed and that if we modelled a different scenario we could have met those targets, and that’s unfair,” he said.
“I think we should still have access to the reward funding based on the work we’ve been doing and the good results we’ve got.”
