Supplementary answer to question without notice
MR CORBELL: I have an answer to a question without notice taken on notice by me from Mr Smyth on 15 November. He asked me:
You were recently quoted as saying that the ACT ambulance service has seven ambulance crews fully operational around the clock. If this is the case, why, on Saturday, 4 November 2006, was it necessary for ambulance service management to hold back day-shift crews for the night shift and, even so, they still failed to have more than five fully manned ambulance crews available after midnight?
The answer to Mr Smyth's question is: in regard to ACT ambulance crew levels on the evening of 4 November, I can advise the following: on Saturday, 4 November there was a requirement to hold one day shift officer back until midnight; there were 61/2 crews available until midnight, six stretcher ambulances and one single-response unit; and there were 51/2 crews available after midnight. Projected crewing levels were adversely affected by access to unplanned sick leave and leave of a personal nature, despite all attempts being made to cover vacancies at that time.
Aged citizens—mobility issues
