APA (NSW) Member Update – SYCC Dispatch Board

APA (NSW) Member Update

Sydney Control Centre Dispatch Board Revision

Tuesday 16 May 2017

Dear Member,

NSWA management will be implementing further changes to the SyCC Dispatch Boards after extensive discussions with APA (NSW). The changes are due to take effect on 17 May 2017. This new board configuration will be in place for 2-3 months.           

We maintain our position that there are serious concerns from staff in relation to a “super board” in the South including: 

It is our view, for the PRN to be effective, NSWA needs to implement eight boards and a fourth DCCO to meet expectations. This could potentially be done by:

APA (NSW) is always happy to discuss any ideas to improve the SYCC dispatch boards for dispatchers, DCCO, SCCOs and on road paramedics.       

If you have any concerns with the new reconfiguration or any suggestions for further reconfiguration of the SYCC dispatch boards please contact the APA (NSW) office via phone on (02) 9564 3261 or email

Still No Uniform Solutions from NSW Ambulance

APA (NSW) appalled by NSW Premier plan to freeze our wages

The NSW Premier’s announcement to freeze the pay of public sector workers for 12 months is disgraceful. Paramedics and our frontline colleagues have been used, yet again, as scapegoats for this Government. We are praised as heroes for our hard work, and in the same breath served a pay cut that will ultimately send our wages backwards.
