Canberra Hospital-helicopter flights

(Question No 328)

Mr Quinlan asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 14 February 2001:

In relation to helicopter flights to and from The Canberra Hospital:

(1) In the last five years, how many flights to and from The Canberra Hospital helipad have:

(a) arrived; or

(b) departed

(2) At what date and time did each flight

(a) arrive; and/or

(b) depart

(3) In each instance,

(a) which helicopter was it that arrived or departed; and

(b)for how long did the helicopter remain idle prior to departure and following arrival.

Mr Smyth: The answers to Mr Quinlan's question are as follows:

(1) The ACT Ambulance Service maintains records for the Snowy Scheme SouthCare Helicopter, only, which commenced operation on October 1 1998. Since commencement of operation, Snowy Scheme SouthCare has landed at The Canberra Hospital on 493 occasions.

(2) & (3) To research and collate data on the arrivals and departures of the helicopter flights would be very time consuming that I am not prepared to authorise the use of considerable resources to answer the Member's question.
