Today in Question Time Minister for Health Ryan Park MP confirmed that the new Dee Why ambulance station announced in March this year by the former Coalition Government will be going ahead.


The Minister provided an update informing the House that the Department is currently reviewing options for an appropriate site for the ambulance station.


Member for Manly James Griffin welcomed the update which he says will ensure that the local community has enhanced access to emergency care when and where they need it most.


“Not only will this new ambulance station boost local health services and bring more jobs to the local area, it will also provide a better working environment for our paramedics who are doing their utmost to serve our community,” Mr Griffin said.


“The new station will feature internal parking for emergency ambulance vehicles, vehicle wash facilities, multipurpose spaces to support staff education and rest, logistics and storage spaces, an office area for administration as well as staff amenities.”
