• 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:
