Wooldridge: Statement on the resignation of Wendy Harris QC

Statement on the resignation of Wendy Harris QC, Chair of the Board of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre

Wendy Harris is a casualty of Daniel Andrews acting in his own political interests, not in the interests of Victorians.

Wendy is a highly respected board chair and has voted with her feet as a result of Daniel Andrews’ continued political interference in the operations of Peter Mac.

Daniel Andrews has tried to sneak out this announcement late on a Friday to avoid public scrutiny.

This decision comes hot on the heals of Labor’s sacking of 135 members across 19 water boards.

The fact remains, Daniel Andrews has ripped 42 new hospital beds from the new Peter Mac cancer centre and cost it $20 million in philanthropic funding.
