Air Ambulance

Christopher Mitchelmore, NDP MHA for The Straits-White Bay North, says questions still surround the removal of air ambulance services from St. Anthony three years after government made the announcement.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The Member for The Straits – White Bay North.

 

NDP MHA Christopher Mitchelmore (The Straits – White Bay North) recently filed a submission with the NL Ambulance Program Review. Mitchelmore was surprised by the response he received from Jane Helleur and Associates Inc, the company conducting the review.

Helleur said “location of air ambulance services is beyond the scope” of their review.

 

NDP MHA Christopher Mitchelmore (The Straits-White Bay North) has written to the panel reviewing the province’s ambulance services. Mitchelmore’s submission focuses on the air ambulance service which was pulled from St. Anthony in early 2010 without any advance warning or consultation.

 

NDP MHA Christopher Mitchelmore (The Straits-White Bay North) is worried the passage of Bill 29 will permanently hide information his constituents have been seeking for a number of years.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Member for The Straits – White Bay North.

MR. MITCHELMORE:Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

 

MR. SPEAKER: The hon. the Member for The Straits – White Bay North.

MR. MITCHELMORE: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker, since the perfectly working air ambulance service was taken from St. Anthony and placed in Labrador, it has been plagued with serious staffing problems.

 

In the House of Assembly today NDP MHA Christopher Mitchelmore (The Straits-White Bay North) asked the government about the air ambulance service that was moved from St. Anthony to Goose Bay.

Mitchelmore stated that since the perfectly working air ambulance service was taken from St. Anthony and placed in Labrador it has been plagued with serious staffing problems.

 

Christopher Mitchelmore, the NDP MHA for The Straits-White Bay North had more questions for the Minister of Health today in the House of Assembly. He says he didn’t get the answers he was looking for.
