The Northern Territory ambulance service is privately run. It’s one of just two privately run ambulance services in the whole country. We know that in every other state with public ambulance services, response times are faster - and ambos are happier.
Now is the time time to bring it back to public hands and create a better service for all - for the safety of Territorians, and our ambos.
We need to fix response times, instead of focusing on brand reputation. That's why ambos are saying it's time for the service to be made public. Without a public ambulance service, Territorians and ambos will continue to suffer with a substandard ambulance system.
