Assaults on Ambos Worsen

Recent media reports have again highlighted the prevalence of assaults on Ambulance Officers in Queensland, reporting that there were 247 claims of assault, including verbal and accidental, in 2014-15.

United Voice would like to hear from members on your experiences with assault to assist future media reporting on the issue.

We’d particularly like to know if you have been assaulted within the last six months, whether you’ve seen an increase in assaults against Paramedics and, if so, what you believe is causing it.

Please use the ‘Union Tip Off’ function on your United Voice Ambulance App to log any stories you may have around ambulance assaults.
