Presbyterian Support Otago vows to fight back
Presbyterian Support Otago has vowed to fight back after being dumped from a more than $5 million contract to provide home-based services to older people.
The news broke earlier this week, after the Southern District Health Board decided to rationalise home-based support services.
PSO board chairman Frazer Barton says there are too many unanswered questions to let the matter go without a fight.
Those include why it was unsuccessful, and why what he says is a high level of service to vulnerable people was rejected.
Presbyterian Support plans to hold as many meetings as it takes to get resolution, the first with the health board tomorrow.
