Middlemore mould: Health Minister demands asset management plan

From Morning Report, 7:33 am on 12 April 2018

Health Minister David Clark is warning it's not just Middlemore Hospital with big building troubles. 

"I learnt the Scott building needed urgent repairs & that week I signed off on additional maintenance funding," Mr Clark tells Guyon Espiner.

He says he has asked for a national asset management plan, and is refusing to be drawn on whether jobs will be lost over the building troubles.

Mr Clark said he met hospital management after a report he received in November last year warned about poor and very poor hospital buildings in Auckland.
