On Monday afternoon the on-duty crew for the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter were tasked with an inter-hospital transfer.
The crew transported a patient from Rotorua Hospital to Auckland Hospital following a stroke.
A woman in her 60’s was rushed directly into surgery upon arrival at Auckland Hospital for clot retrieval surgery.
