Your Safety Comes First

Dear Member,
NSW Ambulance has consistently failed to comply with both the Work Instruction – DISP 6.03 – Extension of Paramedic Shifts and WI2020-139 End of Shift Transfer of Care, particularly as it relates to cars in bed block. We know this is putting our safety at risk due to it increasing our fatigue.
