No consultation again
Air ambulance tender criticized
Health minister Jerome Kennedy declined to speak with the Pen about the tender, the communications department saying that a press release would be issued when the tender was awarded. That process usually takes a few weeks.
Meanwhile, Mr. Hogan says his members are asking why a tender was even opened.
“ Why? That’s the question the pilots, co-pilots and ground crews are all asking. Everything’s working fine for them in terms of the aircraft. From their point of view what’s the future hold if the government is going to buy up private air ambulances? At this point in time it’s a scary place where they’re sitting.”
