CONCERNED: The closure of Moura Hospital could effect other services like the rescue helicopter service.

MANY Moura residents voiced their concerns over the effect a closure of the hospital would have on services such as the Rescue Helicopter Service.

Rescue Helicopter Service CEO Kay Becker said if the hospital was to close it would have a definite impact on the service.

"It would have adverse effects if it was to happen," Kay said

"It costs $6000 for a round trip from Moura to Rockhampton.

"We are certain if the Moura Hospital was to close it will certainly increase our tasking to Moura which will affect our bottom line.

"It is definitely an issue of great concern."

She said Moura was already a busy place for the helicopter service and that would increase if the hospital closed.

Kay said timing for the helicopter was also a concern.

"Between when we get the call and when the patient arrives in Rockhampton it can be one-and-a-half hours.

"Even a reduction of services would affect us."
