QLDC asked to pay Cen­tral Otago Health

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

The Queen­stown Lakes Dis­trict Coun­cil has been asked to con­trib­ute 20 per cent of the ad­min­is­tra­tion costs for the or­gan­i­sa­tion that runs Dun­stan Hos­pi­tal.

In a sub­mis­sion to the coun­cil’s 10 Year Plan Dick Kane, on be­half of Cen­tral Otago Health In­cor­po­rated, has re­quested fund­ing of $1514 to $1540.

The Cen­tral Otago Dis­trict Coun­cil paid $7100 of the ad­min­is­tra­tion costs of $7572 in the past, he said.

‘‘It has been felt for a num­ber of years that QLDC should have been pay­ing their share of the cost for the ad­min­is­tra­tion.’’

There was a long his­tory of in­volve­ment be­tween the ward and Dun­stan Hos­pi­tal and peo­ple from the en­tire re­gion, in­clud­ing Queen­stown, used the hos­pi­tal for CT scans, spe­cial­ist ap­point­ments and chemo­ther­apy treat­ments, he said.

The sub­mis­sions are be­ing con­sid­ered this week.
