Compensation for Private Hospitals shutdown during Covid-19

Paul Roberts made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Paul Roberts to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Paul Roberts

Dear Ministry of Health,

This request is made under the Official Information Act.

With respect to the below article published 24 Apr about the shutdown of private hospitals during the Covid-19 Lockdown.

https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/1212356...

During the Lockdown these private hospitals in NZ did not see a single Covid-19 patient which is similar to hospitals across the Globe that were documented as being idle by independent video evidence. Official statistics showed on average a 60% decline in patient visits during this time compared to previous years and Doctors and Nurses spent their idle time making dancing videos on Tik-tok.

What compensation and amount has the Ministry/Government paid to these private hospitals for remaining empty during the Lockdown period?

Yours faithfully,

Paul Roberts
