Former director describes division rivalry in mergers

But Terry Findlay, whose role as director of AGPN’s National Transition Project ended with the 1 July changeover to Medicare Locals, said he was always prepared for the minority of divisions who “didn’t agree or share the vision” from the outset.

“When [we] provided resources or help, whether that be conferences or webinars, very often when you try to produce things for 61 [MLs]… the circumstances were so different it sometimes didn’t hit the mark,” Mr Findlay told MO.
