Upgrading
Helipads used in
Medical Emergencies
in Regional SA

We will ensure regional South Australians can access medical care quickly and safely by upgrading helipads across regional South Australia.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will upgrade helipads used in medical emergencies across regional South Australia.

Our $7 million investment will upgrade these vital community facilities in Berri, Loxton, Victor Harbour, Kangaroo Island, Port Pirie, Murray Bridge, Wallaroo and Clare.

These upgrades will bring our helipads in line with best practice and ensure that people in need of critical medical care are able to be evacuated to a major hospital quickly and safely.

After being neglected by the former Labor Government, regional South Australians finally have a government that's listening, taking action and delivering better healthcare, closer to home

This commitment is in addition to our commitment to double the PATS subsidy and build on our investment in country doctors, country cancer services, regional hospitals and more.

What it means for you
