    The Prime Minister's been asked to help get sick West Coasters out of an old hospital that's no longer fit for purpose

    The Prime Minister's been asked to help get sick West Coasters out of an old hospital that's no longer fit for purpose


    National MP Maureen Pugh has asked Jacinda Ardern to intervene in negotiations around the Grey Hospital rebuild.

    Pugh says the new building was supposed to open in 2018 - but a standoff between the Ministry of Health and Fletcher Construction means there's no opening date in sight.

    She says staff are working in substandard conditions in a building that's not even earthquake safe - and they need to get out of there.
