Ambulances delayed due to mass communications outage

Paramedic whistleblowers have confirmed the State’s ambulance dispatch system suffered a mass outage on Friday afternoon that remained down until the early hours of this morning causing a number of ambulances delayed.

Shockingly, the Palaszczuk Labor Government chose not to inform Queenslanders about this outage.

Worse still, despite the mass outage occurring on Friday, today it’s been revealed the Premier didn’t get briefed about it until this morning.

Annastacia Palaszczuk has proven yet again she is a part-time Premier not interested in the issues affecting Queenslanders and is no longer capable of showing any leadership to fix them.

What has she been doing?

Today under questioning, the embattled Health Minister Yvette D’Ath admitted ambulances were delayed in getting to Queenslanders in their hour of need.

Whistleblowers have said Queenslanders’ triple-zero calls went unanswered and unlogged.

Paramedics say the safety of Queenslanders was put at risk.

Despite holding multiple media conferences since the outage started, not only did the Palaszczuk Labor Government choose not to explain why the outage occurred, they also chose not to disclose the failure to Queenslanders at all.

This Government no longer believes openness and transparency matters and clearly cares more about its own political survival instead of the survival of Queenslanders in need of an ambulance.

Why did the Palaszczuk Labor Government decide Queenslanders didn’t deserve to know about the outage?  

Why has the Palaszczuk Labor Government failed to explain to Queenslanders why ambulances weren’t there when they needed them?

Queenslanders deserve better.
