We saw it play out on RNZ and elsewhere: a war of words between John Campbell of Checkpoint and the Minister of Health about prostate cancer waiting times. Eventually there was an apology from the Southern DHB!

The embattled minister also told a group of bemused cancer charities that New Zealand's health system was the envy of the world. "You just have to look at all the Givealittle pages to see that's not true," said one commentator. However, a Stuff investigation finds that New Zealand does rank quite highly but not in all areas. 

Finally a hopeful story of how a man survived cancer 8 times and now wants to pay it forward.
