The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS)is in crisis with calls for ambulances for critical incidents like heart attacks seeing the biggest spike in its history.

Brisbane father Ryan Walpole woke in the early hours of the morning suffering chest pain, his 36-week pregnant wife called triple zero. The ambulance arrived 1 hour and 15 minutes after the call for help was placed.

His wife Laura Walpole has complained to the QAS and received a response from them stating back that there was “higher than usual demand.” And “It is extremely regrettable; your husband was affected by these delays.”

Channel nine reported that at the time of the call at 12:50 am 50 cases were waiting for an ambulance including nine priority one calls which are the most urgent life-threatening calls. No ambulance was assigned to Ryan’s case for 40 minutes.

When an ambulance was finally assigned it had to travel from the Royal Brisbane and Women’s hospital to Deception Bay, a total of 45.6km away. To add to the delays, the ambulance had to stop for petrol.

Mr. Walpole is now recovering at home after being given several stents to resolve the problem.

  1. Too bad if he was dying. What has become of our country. It used to be a great one. Now I don’t think I would want to live here with the so called health crisis being the way it is. These so called politicians have ruined Australia.
