An Emergency Medicine spokesperson from the State Branch of the Australian Medical Association is warning something must be done about ambulance ramping.

Last Friday saw crews called in to work overtime with no ambulances able to respond to emergency calls in Perth’s north.

Dr Dave Mountain told Gareth Parker on Mornings, WA has been lucky the usual flu season has been so low due to COVID restrictions.

WA Health system admits the current ambulance system is running ‘hot’ and leading to increased ambulance ramping.

Director General David Russell-Weisz says returning to normal elective surgery levels has led to more beds being occupied as the system tries to catch up.
