Ambulance ramping times doubled

Ambulance ramping doubles in one year

In the first two weeks of August, ambulances at most Perth public hospitals ramped for almost 2900 hours, more than twice rate at the same time in 2015.


According to PerthNow, ramping times have blown out in the past year with times at Fiona Stanley Hospital - our newest and best equipped hospital - having the worst ramping times on record.
