Back to back missions kept Taranaki's rescue helicopter busy yesterday.

About 10.44am the chopper flew to Patea to pick up a male patient suffering medical complications.

However while it was on its way back to Taranaki Base Hospital another job, involving a second urgent medical condition, was called in.

The helicopter landed at Kaimata School and dropped off the first patient, who was taken to hospital in an ambulance, and picked up a female who was flown to Waikato Hospital.

The helicopter returned to its base about 4.30pm.
