Supporting our ambulance services

In an emergency, minutes matter.

Ambulance station

This Budget backs our paramedics and their patients, providing $136 million to upgrade and expand our vital ambulance services.

This includes making sure our paramedics can continue to respond rapidly in an emergency, as well as the extension of the Mobile Stroke Unit and Victorian Stroke Telemedicine initiatives.

This investment also includes funding to deliver year-round ambulance services in Nagambie and 24-hour operations at the Diamond Creek ambulance branch, giving these communities confidence that care is always close by.
