A QUEENSLAND Health boss is under fire for chartering a helicopter for a “joyride” of bush hospitals in far north Queensland.

Officials spent $3100 for a day flight from Cairns to the Outback, Daintree rainforest, and Great Barrier Reef coast last Tuesday.

Doctors, unions and the State Opposition have asked for a “please explain” on why three QH executives did not drive a motor car to facility meetings at hospitals in Dimbulah, Cow Bay and Mossman.

But Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service chair Bob Norman, a property developer and avid aviator who has his own private helicopter, told The Courier-Mail taking a chopper to visit clinics was “cost-effective” and “the only way to travel’’.
