Answered on 13 September 2018

KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING MACHINE

800. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to my previous question on the subject of a magnetic resonance imaging machine for Kalgoorlie Health Campus.

(1) Has the government received any approach from any commercial organisation seeking to install and operate a magnetic resonance imaging machine in Kalgoorlie?

(2) Noting that, as a result of representations from Senator Peter Georgiou, the federal government has promised an MRI licence for Kalgoorlie regional hospital, is the government contemplating selling that licence to a commercial operator?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. I am advised as follows.

(1) The WA Country Health Service has not been approached by any commercial organisation seeking to install and operate an MRI machine in Kalgoorlie.

(2) WACHS has not had any discussions regarding the licence.
