Becka’s Story

Becka was 27 weeks pregnant when she started to feel unwell; at Greymouth Hospital she was diagnosed with swine flu. Becka was put in an induced coma prior to taking her to Christchurch Hospital, where she spent the next week.

“The NZFD Service made all of the difference to our family. Becka wouldn’t be alive if she had stayed in Greymouth. The intensive care specialist on the flight saved her life. The inter-hospital transfer service was seamless – thank you so much for saving my Becka, and our baby.” Mark – Becka’s partner

“Like Becka, anyone can need this service; each day we transfer patients of all ages. We know it can be a terrifying and lonely prospect flying across New Zealand when critically ill – but be reassured we are trained to care for you and will look after you as we would our own family.” Dr Neil Davidson – Intensive Care Specialist
