Auckland DHB's do a deal with DML

The Auckland DHB's have had to do a deal with Diagnostic Medlab , effectively extending their existing contract at least until the end of next year.

They have had to do this as the timetable to run another tender was incredibly short to start July 1.

Sometime soon we may yet see someone, anyone take some responsibility for this complete and utter balls-up. Bet it won't be a government minister though.
