United Workers Union admits ‘there’s no quick thing’ to fix ramping crisis
The union representing Queensland’s ambulance workers admits there’s no quick fix to the ramping crisis gripping Queensland.
Health workers have had some of their busiest days in recent weeks, with 170 patients left waiting for ambulances on Monday night.
United Workers Union National Ambulance Coordinator Fiona Scanlan told Neil Breen the situation isn’t fair on patients or paramedics.
“There’s no a quick thing that can be done,” she said. “We can’t build a hospital tomorrow.
“That’s the problem: … ambulances are bearing the brunt of what is a failing health system.”

State Opposition Leader David Crisafulli said the LNP has put forward solutions in Queensland.
“We’ve done what everybody says oppositions don’t do enough of,” he told Ray Hadley.
“We’ve listened and we’ve put forward solutions.”
