APA (NSW) Member Update – CAMPAIGN UPDATE

CAMPAIGN UPDATE
Equal Access for All
Thursday 3 January 2019

Every paramedic should be entitled to the same career and skills progression
opportunities regardless of where they live.

Every patient should also be entitled to the same level of care regardless of where they live.
Despite this, in an emergency, a patient in Health Minister Brad Hazzard’s electorate will benefit
from the response of specialist paramedics. A paramedic in the Minister’s electorate can apply for
opportunities to advance their skills and their career.

Despite this, in the Government’s announcement of 750 new paramedics and support staff, not
one dollar of funding will go towards specialist positions.

We are fighting strongly for specialist positions for every community throughout NSW to have
access to specialist paramedics.

Every paramedic and every resident of NSW should have access to clinical specialisations.
Our community deserves better and so do we.
