Paramedics unions have stated that members will be taking action in a bid to pressure Government to improve working conditions and resources after being ignored by the government.
To reduce the strain on an overburdened healthcare system there needs to be an increase in staff, improved pay and investment.
NSW has the worst paramedic to population ratio and worst spending per capita out of all the states. Response times have decreased by more than 40 per cent in the last decade.
An increase of 1500 paramedics is urgently needed to bring NSW into line with other states. This situation was worsened by the sacking of unvaccinated paramedics.
NSW nurses are also considering taking further industrial action amid a stalemate over pay and conditions.
Ambulance workers insist their first priority is the care of their patients. The action will deliberately target under-resourcing without compromising care to patients or communities.
The office of Health Minister Brad Hazzard has been contacted for comment.
