Ms TIERNEY — Since the Liberal-Nationals government took office in 2010, the amount of time ambulances have been ramped at Geelong Hospital has increased by 2752 hours. That is a massive 76 per cent increase on what the figure was when the state Labor government left office. It is little wonder that Victorians are seeing stories in local and statewide media almost daily of the Napthine government’s failure to maintain the health system. The figures, which have had to be pried out of the hands of the Minister for Health, David Davis, through FOI requests, show that the trend is statewide and that even though Geelong Hospital’s figures are particularly alarming, there are even worse cases across the state. Every minute an ambulance spends ramped at the hospital is a minute it is not available to the community and ready to attend the next emergency call.
