Emergency care workers needed in Victoria, Australia

An ageing workforce is contributing to a massive shortage of emergency care workers in the Australia state of Victoria, including ambulance drivers, paramedics, critical care co-ordinators, transport officers, retrieval physicians and station officers.

According to the Sunday Herald Sun newspaper, “Victoria’s ambulance service has been hit by a workforce exodus with more than two staff members a week quitting important metropolitan and rural posts.” In the past two years, at least 213 Ambulance Victoria staff members have left their positions. Additionally, reports the Sunday Herald Sun, “Paramedics are leaving the service in droves, with 161 quitting in Victoria and more than 100 in Melbourne between November 2007 and last October 31.”
