Chief MInister Gallagher has announced the release of the latest surgery report card.

The graphs look good and as always she reckons it’s fantastic.

We await with interest the Liberals’ interpretation.

UPDATE: Jeremy Hanson has grudgingly admitted that the numbers are better but says they’re still not good:

“Katy Gallagher broke the elective surgery system, has attempted to cobble it back together, and is now claiming some sort of victory while the ACT is still the worst performing jurisdiction.

“Earlier this month, due to Katy Gallagher’s failure as Health Minister, the ACT failed to meet agreed COAG targets for elective surgery and our health system missed out on $900,000 in reward funding as a result.
