How many health ministers does it take to build an ambulance station?

Tasmanian Labor

The Liberal Government continues to bungle the development of the new Burnie Ambulance Station.

Labor Member for Braddon Anita Dow said the government were yet to deliver on their 2018 election commitment and ongoing delays were unfair to hardworking paramedics and the North-West community.

“We have had three Health Ministers oversee this project and the government needs to make a start,” Ms Dow said.

“The proposal to relocate the ambulance station to a residential area has raised concern for some adjoining residents and the government must work with the community to find a suitable site.”

Ms Dow said the essential station was announced three years ago and now is the time for the government to properly consult the community and put the wheels in motion for it to be built.

“New Health Minister Jeremey Rockliff cannot follow in the footsteps of failed Health Ministers Michael Ferguson and Sarah Courtney with more delays and announcements.

“The Liberals must deliver the new Burnie Ambulance Station, they have already wasted three years with inaction.”
