Air Ambulance supplemental funding during COVID

Richard James made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Richard James to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Richard James

Dear Ministry of Health,

I request information regarding additional payments made to all Air Ambulance providers by the Ministry of Health or District Health Boards during the period April 2020 to April 2021.
This request is for details on payments to providers over and above individual patient transfers i.e. any payment made irrespective of work done, particularly with regard to payments that may have been requested by providers during lockdown.

'Air Ambulance provider' refers both to those contracted to provide rotary wing services through the National Ambulance Sector Office (NASO) & those providing fixed wing services for DHB transfers. This includes, but is not limited to payments made to GCH Aviation, Skyline Aviation, Life Flight, Northland Helicopters, Air Whanganui etc.

Please provide details of any any payments broken down by:
- Date paid
- Amount paid
- Name of provider to whom it was paid

Yours faithfully,
Richard James
