I wonder if this will be as successful as the money T Ryall put up via HRC for evaluation of the BSMC initiative?

 

So non-GP assessors are vetting the non-GP evaluators to ensure that non-GP decided funding of non-GP-designed models are in place to control GPs?  I wonder how many millions of dollars are wasted to ensure the $1.33 mil evaluation doesn't allow GPs to regain any control over primary care?  I don't recall anyone with any qualifications in epidemiology, or statistics in the Ministry of Health's 12 member Executive Leadership Team, although they have one ex-oncologist and one ex-rural GP who might just remember how 25 years ago General Practice in New Zealand was a respected profession.
