Quality and consistency through collaboration

Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service and the NSW Health Medical Retrieval Network

Tony Deegan and Adam Fuller and their teams advised Westpac Rescue Helicopter Services (WRHS) on its successful tender to provide aeromedical retrieval services for the newly-created NSW Health Medical Retrieval Network. WRHS will provide helicopter services in northern NSW for the Ambulance Service of NSW.

Our team advised WRHS on the competitive tender process, as well as its entry into aircraft operating lease agreements for the four new AW139 helicopters and the potential acquisition of new bases. Sparke Helmore also advise WHRS on the complex security structure, which needed to reflect the WRHS aircraft financing and mobilisation funding requirements.
