Tasmanian tradition of generosity abounds at RHH

The Hodgman Liberal Government thanks the team at the Royal Hobart Hospital Volunteer Service. It’s one of the proudest and strongest workforces in Tasmania and recently celebrated it’s 50th anniversary.

Each day these caring professionals ensure all Tasmanians receive first class midwifery and nursing care when being treated within our health system.

North West Regional Hospital helipad

The new helipad at the North West Regional Hospital is structurally complete and meets all the required standards – some minor technical issues have been identified which are now very close to being resolved.

Patients have always been able to be transported from the NWRH. Contrary to Labor leader Bec White’s media release, a patient was in fact transferred this morning by helicopter to the Royal Hobart Hospital where they are receiving the appropriate care.

Victoria just took my call as a real donor to show me how it's done! Now I'm ready to take your call.

I took this photo around 8am this morning of the beautiful Mount Roland just south of Sheffield...basking in the morning sunrise.

I was taking the central plateau route on my way to visit Queenstown for a cabinet meeting and of course to call on our wonderful staff at the Queenstown Hospital. The photo has no effects or filters... Just gorgeous and in the raw! And yes, it was freezing at the time!

(Now heading back to Launceston for the Give Me Five For Kids telethon at Southern Cross News Tasmania)
