Minister responding: Hon R.H. Cook
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on 12 June 2018

KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — SONOGRAPHY AND NUCLEAR MEDICINE
      432. Hon ROBIN SCOTT to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to question without notice 343 of 10 May 2018.
      (1) Noting the minister's response that, on average, the total cost of flying four sonographers from Perth to Kalgoorlie each week is $3 830 inclusive of accommodation and meals, what is the total weekly cost of flying four sonographer contractors from Perth to Kalgoorlie inclusive of airfares, accommodation, meals, transfers and contract rates?
      (2) Is it correct that a local Kalgoorlie–Boulder sonographer did submit an application and went through the Department of Health process and there was negotiation about conditions?
      (3) Is it correct that a representative of the health department then asked the local sonographer to withdraw the application and the health department then proceeded with the much more expensive current fragmented model?
Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
Providing the information in the time required is not possible; however, I will endeavour to provide the answer as soon as possible.
