Statistics for Esperance
It is believed that over 50% of the Esperance Community have been transferred by the RFDS and for at least several years, flying into Esperance on an average of over three times a week, transferring to either Perth or Kalgoorlie Hospitals.

The medical staff at the hospital, St Johns Ambulance and the RFDS are quietly working behind the scenes and it is very important to note that medical care during transmission can only be supplied by the specialised equipment on board the Plane and so, by the time the plane arrives in Perth a full patient assessment has been completed.

During 2015, 2016 & 2017 there were approximately five patients per week transferred from Esperance either to Perth or Kalgoorlie. The RFDS medical response here in Esperance, is a range of medical conditions, from the most common being cardiovascular disease such as heart attacks, injury, poisoning, pregnancy and childbirth related conditions.

The Nursing Staff and Doctor often describe this equipment as Minnie Intensive Units and of course it goes without saying this equipment is lifesaving. It is the finest care, using the latest aviation, medical and communications technology. Esperance being isolated relies on the Royal Flying Doctor Service - Esperance Auxiliary (Inc).
