LNP advocates for ambulance ramping solutions

25th March 2021

Statement by Opposition Leader David Crisafulli

Ambulance ramping is back in Queensland.

The State Government is losing control of healthcare, meaning Queenslanders are losing access to vital services.

Today’s emergency meeting called by the Health Minister must work towards implementing genuine solutions.

The LNP is advocating for solutions like:

1) Data on resource availability to be made available in real time so patients and our health professionals can make choices in real time.

2) Providing better resourcing for triaging in emergency departments to ensure the service is fit for purpose.

3) Investing in more resourced beds instead of fudging the figures by counting chairs in the hospital bed tally.

I urge the State Government to work with us.

Queenslanders deserve a world-class health system they can rely on.
