"That was unfortunate... I think he heard your comment, 'If he's any good, why hasn't he gone to Australia?'" 24 April, 2008
Reference Number: DCDL-0006295
Shows a doctor's surgery. As a man lies face down on the bed waiting for an injection in his posterior the doctor fills the syringe using a needle from his 'blunt needles' box. The nurse tells the patient that unfortunately the doctor overheard his comment that 'if he's any good, why hasn't he gone to Australia?'. Refers to the junior doctors' strikes in May 2008 in an effort to get a pay rise that would help the retention problem in New Zealand.
