Notable increase in NSW ambulance responses driven by surges in ‘emergency priority 1 (P1)’ cases

The Healthcare Quarterly report for NSW, published earlier this week, reveals the dire state of the health service industry confronting stakeholders, workers, and government bureaucrats. In tandem with poor working conditions, worker burnout, and significant increases in demand, the report measures the drastic impact on life-saving services we depend on daily.

The report reveals not only an increase in demand for Ambulances services (6.1%) but that the response times of Priority one call outs (life-threatening conditions) have dropped to levels unseen since 2010, with only 37% of Ambulances arriving within 15 mins of a Priority 1 call (lights and sirens) and 79% coming within 30 mins. This means 63% are not meeting the 15 min windows in response, and 20 % of P1 callouts are taking well over 30 mins to arrive. P1 cases were also up by 10% on the same period in 2019.

For the reader’s insight, for best outcomes, a P1 emergency call benchmark is to arrive within 8 minutes of a call.

Paramedics in NSW have had a woeful time over the last year trying to draw attention to the overdemanding conditions imposed upon them by both a fracturing public health system and the NSW state government.

Numerous failed attempts to negotiate fairer workplace standards have seen industrial action from the Australian Paramedics Association NSW, threatening a mass exodus of skilled and qualified workers if conditions don’t change. The Govt response over a week ago promised 1800 new staff and 30 new Ambulance stations. The 5% pay rise they sought has been set at 3 %, but this is all pending an election outcome that is yet, uncertain.
