FIGURES SHOW REGION’S PARAMEDICS DOING AN AMAZING JOB: MARSHALL

Tuesday, 2 October 2018

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has today praised NSW Ambulance paramedics across the region for their work performances, saying official figures show just what a great job they are doing on the job.

Mr Marshall said the latest Bureau of Health Information (BHI) data demonstrated the New England zone continued to excel in meeting statewide performance and activity targets.

“Our local ambos do an amazing job and the proof is in the latest official statistics which confirm just how incredible they are in performing their work across our communities,” Mr Marshall said.

“The most recent figures validate the community’s belief and respect they have in our ambos as some of the most trusted professionals going around.”

Mr Marshall was speaking after the release of the April to June 2018 report detailing NSW Ambulance performances across key measures monitored by the NSW Ministry for Health.

It showed that paramedics in the New England handled some 2,312 priority 1 or emergency calls from April to June this year and some 2,952 priority 2 or urgent calls in the same period.

Of the 18 health district zones in NSW, New England had returned impressive figures for response times, from the time of calls to arrival of ambulances, to ambulance response times and to mobilisation and turnaround times.

“Those figures consistently showed our paramedics were at the higher end of the scale, and in many cases, well above the statewide average times,” Mr Marshall said.

“They’re doing great work and it’s a credit to them considering the vast size of the New England Zone.

“I’d like to place on record my appreciation and acknowledgement of the performances of paramedics and extend the thanks of all the communities in this region to them.

“Their ongoing effort and commitment to ensuring we have a responsive and dynamic ambulance service for our communities and the wider local health districts we work within is worthy of acknowledgment.”
