QUESTION ON 18 JUNE 2019:
The Hon. T.A. FRANKS (14:49): Supplementary: how is it communicated to places such as hospitals that a Code Blue or a Code Red has been called so that, for example, ambulance officers are aware that they can take somebody who has been discharged to that service that night?
RESPONSE ON 18 JUNE 2019:
The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (Minister for Human Services) (14:49): My understanding is that there is a range of media that are used. There is an email that goes to a range of service providers, and social media is also used. Certainly, I have been advised from various organisations that they receive that notification very quickly. In some instances, phone calls will be made, but if the honourable member would like a list of all of the organisations that receive formal notification then I will take that on notice and bring back a response.
The PRESIDENT: Leader of the Opposition, a further supplementary?
