Rural health Emergency services First responders Ambulance service Australia

People living in rural and remote Australia experience poorer health outcomes and have poorer access to health services compared to major cities. Mobilising the paramedic workforce has the potential to improve health outcomes for people living in rural and remote Australia.

Data on the paramedic workforce for this fact sheet has been taken from the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Paramedicine Board statistics, while the jurisdictional ambulance services data has been derived from the Report on Government Services (ROGS).
