The numbers and costs for past twelve months for medical transfers

Official Information Request WCDHB 9382

I refer to your email dated 13th January 2020 requesting the following information under the Official Information Act from West Coast DHB.

• I would like to see the numbers and cost figures for the past twelve months for medical transfers. But I would like to know if there has been an increase within that period so a break-down of flights by the month would be helpful.

We are interested in the number and cost of medical patient transfers by helicopter, to and from Buller hospital. I understand there were three on Saturday afternoon alone and we are wondering why patients cannot be transported more cheaply by road? It’s been suggested there may be a shortage of St John volunteers to drive or accompany them.

The questions are:

• How often is this happening?
