Ambulance ramping in Victoria occurred pre-pandemic, new research shows

New research has found ambulance ramping times in Victoria were blowing out before the pandemic and are linked to a significant increase in the risk of death.

The research – published in the Medical Journal of Australia – observed 200,000 cases of people taken to Victorian hospitals with chest pains and found blown-out ambulance wait times could have led to 70 preventable deaths in 2018.

The findings debunk claims by the Andrews government that the ramping problem is related to COVID-19 pressures on the system.
