Queensland Police are now being directed in writing, to be ramped at our hospitals.
This is the harrowing next chapter of the Queensland Health Crisis.
Police didn’t sign up to be de facto paramedics because of a State Government that can’t run essential services.
The Health Crisis is now so bad, we’re pulling police off the road to carry the load, when they should be on the beat keeping the community safe.
If police are on a ramp, it means they’re not responding to calls for help.
It also means Queenslanders stuck in police cars aren’t getting the healthcare they need.
For the admission to be spelled out in an official direction is a sad indictment of the state of our health system.
This isn’t the fault of health workers or our police officers, this is what happens when a government fails to plan.”
