Yan Yean electorate
My constituency question is to the Minister for Health and Minister for Ambulance Services, and I ask: what are the delivery time lines for the two new ambulance branch stations in the Yan Yean electorate? The Andrews government has committed to build new ambulance stations in Diamond Creek and Mernda. They are extremely important for Melbourne’s north, to service the increased population growth. They are an important part of the Andrews government’s significant efforts, working with our paramedics, to reduce ambulance response times that are now the best in nine years. In Whittlesea, on average, response times are down by 32 seconds to now 12 minutes and 23 seconds and in Nillumbik by 52 seconds to 14 minutes and 40 seconds. These two new branch stations will make a huge difference in bringing those down even further.
