From Morning Report, 8:30 am on 5 August 2020

The resignation of the Canterbury District Health Board's top official is being labelled a disaster for the region.

David Meates will also relinquish his position as chief executive of the West Coast DHB.

His tenure at the debt plagued Canterbury DHB includes well-publicised battles with the Ministry of Health over budget issues.
