Whilst the State Government slipped through an increase to the cost of ambulance on the weekend, they continued to sit on their hands in providing the ambulance service South Australians deserve, putting lives at risk.

Ambulance Employees’ Association (AEA) Secretary Phil Palmer said today “The Government has failed to deliver in its pre-election undertaking to our members to provide the funding needed to ensure enough ambulance resources to ensure South Australians are protected”

“It is misleading for the Government to suggest that the increase in fees goes to SAAS ‘for development’ “ Mr Palmer said, “All revenue raised by our members goes straight to Treasury not to SA Ambulance”.
