2 in 3 Paramedics want to or are considering leaving the profession. 6 in 10 emergency patients aren't getting an ambulance soon enough. We
is Paramedics' campaign to demand real, substantive action on the emergency healthcare crisis. Union members are standing up and demanding
that their safety, and their patients safety, is put first.
Tragically, our members have reported that patients are dying and experiencing adverse clinical outcomes due to bed block and worsening response times. Every minute of every day, people in NSW are being put at risk by our underfunded emergency healthcare system. This is felt acutely in regional NSW, where our ‘hub and spoke’ model has ripped valuable resources out of rural and remote communities. We need your help to make sure patient and Paramedic wellbeing is a priority of any incoming government in 2023.
