Surgery is back on schedule at the West Coast District Health Board following replacement of three of four anaesthetic machines at Grey Base Hospital. Unresolvable software issues with the machines had caused reliability issues resulting in cancellation of some elective surgery.

Working closely with the manufacturers has enabled three replacement loan machines to be delivered quickly to ensure that disruptions to planned surgery were kept to a minimum.

The District Health Board is appreciative of the understanding shown by patients who we required to have their surgery rescheduled and is confident that the new equipment will provide safe and reliable service to patients.
