Redcliffe residents in need of transport to and from medical appointments and surgeries are benefiting from a new ambulance transport vehicle on the peninsula.
Minister for Health and Ambulances Services Yvette D’Ath says the new $104,000 Mercedes Sprinter Patient Transport Bus was a great addition to the local health and ambulance network and a big win for peninsula residents.
“A lot of people wouldn’t realise what our Queensland Ambulance Patient Transport Officers do, and how valued they are by their patients,” Ms D’Ath says.
“These dedicated professionals safely transport thousands of peninsula residents to their appointments each year. They forge strong one-on-one connections with their patients and know how to put them at ease on their journey to medical appointments.
“With this new vehicle, Redcliffe Ambulance Station and its 22-strong workforce will be able to take local ambulance services to a new level.”
The new Mercedes Sprinter has been converted into a hi-tech ambulance vehicle for non-urgent patient transport services.
