KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — MAGNETIC
RESONANCE IMAGING MACHINE
929. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary
representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to question without notice 832 on the subject of a magnetic
resonance imaging machine for the Kalgoorlie Health Campus.
(1) Will the
minister explain why up to 30 months will be required, after a budget decision,
for the procurement, installation and commissioning of an MRI?
(2) Will the
minister now confirm that from the date of placement of an order, a complete
MRI machine, together with Faraday cage and
water-cooling system, can be installed and commissioned within 16 weeks?
(3) Will the
minister identify the section of the department that is responsible for
preparing the business case for the MRI for the Kalgoorlie Health Campus, with
or without identifying the individual or individuals involved?
Hon ALANNA CLOHESY
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the
question. I am advised of the following.
infrastructure planning, a tender process, contractor appointment and
construction, including internal re-alignment or relocation of existing
facilities and services, in addition to the procurement of the equipment, is
associated with the establishment of MRI services.
installation, testing and commissioning is unlikely to be achievable within a 16-week
time frame due to the many variables associated with sourcing, through to
commissioning, specialised medical equipment such as an MRI.
