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.

The NWRH helipad is the most modern in Tasmania and will be a great asset for the North West coast that will help save lives.

Once again, Ms White wants to be negative about a life saving investment made by the Hodgman Liberal Government as a result of our One Health System plan.
