NURSING POSTS AND AGED-CARE FACILITIES — MAINTENANCE —MINING AND PASTORAL REGION
1088. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to the $13 585 allocated to
the Mining and Pastoral Region for maintenance and repairs at hospitals,
clinics, nursing posts, aged-care facilities and residences.
(1) Were travel
time and kilometres factored into the allocated amounts, considering the
location of some of the facilities?
(2) Who decided what work has to be
(3) How were the dollar values
arrived at for the various facilities?
(4) Will local contractors be
considered to carry out the repairs and maintenance?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
late 2018, WA Country Health Service regional teams developed a four-year
outlook of minor works requirements. The works items have been identified from
within the 2018 submission. Dollar value estimates
for the various facilities were developed locally through a mix of contractor
quotes and awareness of local industry and knowledge of previous works
(4) WACHS will be
working with the Department of Finance to ensure that local contractors are
engaged to undertake the works wherever possible.
