KALGOORLIE HEALTH CAMPUS — MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING MACHINE
Hon JACQUI BOYDELL
to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:
I refer to question without notice 926 asked on 5 December 2017 regarding the proposed Kalgoorlie magnetic resonance imaging machine.
(1) Has the business case been completed for this project?
(2) If no to (1), when will it be completed?
(3) If yes to (1), has an MRI licence been obtained from the commonwealth government?
(4) If no to (3), when will this process be completed?
Hon ALANNA CLOHESY
I thank the member for some notice of the question.
(1) No. A concept brief was finalised in December and an MRI feasibility study is currently underway. The study will provide costed location options based on value for money and operational efficiencies. The feasibility study will inform a business case.
(2) If the feasibility study is endorsed by government, a business case seeking government endorsement to approve the capital requirements and additional operating costs for an MRI machine could be completed by early 2019.
(3) An application for a commonwealth government MRI licence cannot be made until the MRI machine is installed.
(4) It will be post the MRI installation.
