While outlining the apparent difficulties in sifting the grains from the chaff, Auckland District Health Board chairman Wayne Brown explained how the 66 year old patient was ineligible for the treatment. The Woman had used another person's passport to avail medical treatment.

Chief financial officer Roger Jarrold said "We are no longer in contact with them. We've advised Immigration what's going on ... We will go to the police with it. We have been informed by the Immigration Service that the individual believed to be using the passport is no longer in New Zealand."
