What will it take to fix the crisis? 

 So far, the NSW Government has announced a massive increase to our staffing levels, with funding for an additional 2128 Paramedics and support staff positions , as well as 30 new Paramedic stations.

This is a good step, but we need to be clear: without systemic, statewide reform, more Paramedics will simply mean more crews in bed block. And in a short decade or so, we will be right back to where we are today, with critical staffing shortages and a failing healthcare system. 

We're calling for six simple actions that will make a real and lasting difference to the pressures on our healthcare system, the experience of frontline staff, and the quality of care patients receive.

These actions will improve healthcare for everyone in NSW, not just those in metropolitan and peri-urban areas. While the Government originally committed to allocating 40% of new positions to regional areas, there is almost zero dedicated funding from this announcement for more Paramedics beyond Newcastle and Wollongong. We think everyone in NSW deserves better care.
