Ambos and health workers to benefit from Labor’s $33M pledge

Ambos and health workers to benefit from Labor’s $33M pledge

Members working in health and ambulance services south of Brisbane have won a funding commitment from Labor leader Bill Shorten that would alleviate patient congestion at Logan Hospital’s Emergency Department.

United Voice members have raised concerns about triage bottle-necking and “ramped” ambulances parked up with patients outside Logan Hospital, making it difficult for paramedics and hospital staff to do their job of assisting people in need.

Labor’s $33.4 million commitment would see a new seven-day, urgent care clinic built in the community, which would go a long way toward easing pressure at the hospital and deliver better services for the community.

When United Voice members band together and speak out, our politicians and policy makers listen.
