Canterbury's chief medical officer and leader of the region's Covid-19 response says the adversarial and divisive approach of the board and the Crown Monitor is behind her decision to quit. Dr Sue Nightingale is one of seven senior executives who have resigned from the Canterbury District Health Board in the last two weeks. Yesterday staff held a protest over the string of resignations as the DHB board, led by Sir John Hansen, met to discuss a proposal to cut $56 million from the deficit. Sue Nightingale says her departure is not about the deficit, but about the behaviour of the board.
