The health board at the centre of a leadership meltdown remained quiet today, as doctors called for urgent government intervention.

It comes after the Crown monitor, Dr Lester Levy said today that the Canterbury District Health Board's financial performance has been 'seriously deteriorating' over the past five years with its deficit increasing tenfold over that same period.

Seven members of Health Board's executive team have now resigned since July, and one spoke out today pointing to the 'adversarial' attitude of the board members as her reason for the mass exodus.
