St John Ambulance staff across New Zealand are taking action to highlight the risks posed to themselves and the public from the current state of the Ambulance service. Sign the open letter to St John CEO Peter Bradley to show your support.
To Peter Bradley,
Assaults on single-crewed ambulance staff, prolonged work-periods without rest breaks, and patient welfare put at risk are now common occurrences in the service. With adequate staff and funding these issues are easily resolved.
Please do the right thing by your staff and the people they care for and ensure:
Ambulances are fully crewed with skilled staff so that patients get the best care possible and Ambulance Professionals are safe in vulnerable situations.
Ambulance Professionals get rest and meal breaks to ensure that they are fit to make the right decisions on the job to save lives.
Ambulance Professionals are fairly rewarded for the service they provide.
We stand in support of Ambulance Professionals in their fight for fair work conditions.
