RE Official information request CDHB 9777 and WCDHB 9080
On the information provided by Ministry of Health on SCHEDULE 3: DHB Provider Arm Financial Performance which is available online at
https://www.health.govt.nz/new-zealand-health-system/key-health-sector-organisations-andpeople/district-health-boards/accountability-and-funding/summary-financial-reports/dhb-sectorfinancial-reports-2015-16 I notice that the year to date clinical supplies expenditure decreases from $8046 in May 2016 to $7780 in June 2016, which represents a net decrease of $266 from May 2016 to June 2016.
How is this possible, please? Year to date expenses always increase or remain same. They can only decrease if there is some sort of income added to it or there was an error in clinical supplies
expenditure in May 2016 (for example overstated by $266) which then reduced the clinical supplies expenditure by the amount of $266 for June 2016 ( the next period).
