Call for SFO to reopen Nigel Murray spending inquiry after Auditor-General slates HealthTap purchase
Former Labour MP Sue Moroney has called on the Serious Fraud Office to reopen its investigation into the spending of Dr Nigel Murray in light of an Auditor-General’s inquiry into the purchase of an online doctor app.
The ex-Waikato District Health Board chief executive, together with former board chairman Bob Simcock, has been criticised over the flawed procurement of HealthTap in 2015, in an report released today by the Auditor-General.
It comes as Simcock told the Herald he was comfortable with his role in the saga that cost taxpayers $26 million.
Moroney said the Auditor-General’s report, tabled in Parliament this afternoon, raised more questions than it answered.
