Question Without Notice No. 343 asked in the Legislative Council on 10 May 2018 by Hon Robin Scott

Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on

KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — SONOGRAPHY AND NUCLEAR MEDICINE
      343. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to question without notice 328, to which the minister provided an answer on Wednesday, 9 May 2018.
      (1) Noting the minister's response that on average, four sonographers are flown from Perth to Kalgoorlie each week at a total cost of $3 830, what is the total weekly cost of flying four sonographer contractors from Perth to Kalgoorlie inclusive of accommodation and meals?
      (2) Noting the minister's response that two sonography positions were advertised by the WA Country Health Service in December 2017, with no applications, was the lack of response a consequence of the antiquated equipment still being used in the Kalgoorlie regional hospital?
Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:
      I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
      (1) The total cost of $3 830 is inclusive of accommodation and meals.
      (2) I am unable to provide an answer to this question as it is seeking an opinion.
