Jeers in Parliament over ACC announcement
Tue, 12 Jun 2012 3:27p.m.
ACC Minister Judith Collins has faced jeering in Parliament this afternoon while announcing the corporation's chairman will stand down.
John Judge will leave the ACC Board at the end of the month and Ms Collins says he's stepping down to take up a new role at ANZ National Bank.
Mr Judge has been criticised for standing by ACC staff who claimed they were threatened by Bronwyn Pullar over the privacy blunder, even though police and a 3 News investigation found no threats were made.
Ms Collins paid tribute to Mr Judge in the House.
“I’d like to thank Mr Judge for the contribution he has made,” said Ms Collins.
“In particular turning around ACC’s financial performance from massive loses left by the previous Labour Government.”
The Bronwyn Pullar allegations are still under investigation by the Auditor General and the Privacy Commissioner.

ACC has made a huge profit because the Corporation has not been providing rehabilitation and entitlements under the Act. ACC's treatment of brain injured claimants is appalling. I know of many of these clients who have been sent to toady doctors who are paid exhorbitant amounts of money to write reports saying there is nothing wrong with them . One neurologist in Otago comes to mind being flown all around the country to copy and paste the same report for different people. Is also paid millions of dollars for his service. Shame on you. More heads further down the food chain nee to go too if this culture at ACC is to improve

A inquiry needs to be made into ACCs mis treatment of head injury clients. ACC has rorted n failed its own mission statement. Its a Crown entity not a SOE it doesnt need to make a profit.Lets start with that before any whitewash is made of this injustice.

They have only turned massive losses around by refusing all claims. Akin to not paying your bills if I refused to pay my bills my business would be running at a huge profit as well.
