KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — CT SCANNER
Hon ROBIN SCOTT
to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:
(1) Does the minister recall on 25 August 2017, in an answer to question on notice 77 asked in the Legislative Council on 22 June 2017 on the subject of the computer-assisted tomography scanner at Kalgoorlie regional hospital, stating that the replacement CT scanner for Kalgoorlie was scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2017?
(2) Why was the replacement CT scanner for Kalgoorlie not installed in the fourth quarter of 2017?
(3) Will the minister now advise when the replacement CT scanner for Kalgoorlie will be installed?
(4) Is the delay in the installation of the replacement CT scanner at Kalgoorlie part of a policy of disregarding residents of regional and remote Western Australia for the sake of supposed budget repair?
Hon ALANNA CLOHESY
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(2) The replacement of the CT scanner was deferred until the medical equipment business case was considered. The current CT scanner is fully operational.
(3) The current CT scanner is on the medical equipment replacement list. The Kalgoorlie CT replacement scanner will be funded as part of the 2018–19 medical equipment replacement program, which is part of WA Health's upcoming 2018–19 state budget. A new 64-slice CT scanner will be ordered within the existing procurement process. It will take approximately 12 weeks for the new CT scanner to be fully operational from the date the order is placed.
(4) No. The existing 16-slice CT scanner is fully operational and will be replaced with a 64-slice machine.
