Health Minister Chris Hipkins said Northland has set itself a pretty ambitious target.

“At the moment they are not meeting that target, so we will be working with them on what we can do to increase those numbers.

“Do they need additional resources, can we work with other DHBs to lend them additional resources if they need it.
