Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
165
Title
Ambulance services in Seymour
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the need for equitable services to respond to the health needs of regional Victorians, regardless of where they live.

There are four ambulances at Seymour station, but only one crew is rostered on overnight. There is also no on-call service in cases where the Seymour crew are deployed to another area, including Melbourne. The impact of this practice leaves residents vulnerable and without an available ambulance response within the 15-minute Code 1 response target.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council calls on the Government to restore on-call ambulance services in Seymour, in addition to their current resourcing.
