Push for Free Ambulance Cover in SA

Posted on: Wed 23 May 2018

Independent MP Frances Bedford has proposed a radical overhaul of our state’s ambulance system.

Ms Bedford’s proposal follows the lead of states such as Queensland, Tasmania and NSW in taking the cost of ambulance care away from the individual who receives it.

Such a system would theoretically make ambulances more accessible to lower income earners, many of whom have cited cost as a significant factor in not using this service in the past.    

Ms Bedford joins Breakfast’s Tom and Casey to discuss the proposal.
