Keelty Review Released

The State Government has released the Keelty Review into Emergency Services.

The key recommendations for the Queensland Ambulance Service are: 

1. That the Queensland Ambulance Service is transferred to Queensland Health by a machinery-of-Government change as soon as is practicable and that the Commissioner report directly to the Director General Queensland Health. 

2. That the Queensland Ambulance Service is maintained as a state-wide service into the future. 

3. That negotiation takes place between Queensland Health and the Queensland Ambulance Service to determine the broad governance requirements of any such arrangements. 

4. That the Queensland Ambulance Service maintains its own identity to: 

  • ensure their role is not lost 
  • focus on key performance indicators, such as response times 
  • build on the goodwill the Queensland Ambulance Service has with the community. 

5. That Queensland Health continues to recognise and foster the important contributions of Local Ambulance Committees to supporting effective community focused ambulance services across the State.
