In 2011 after more than 37 years I, like many paramedics since then, resigned from Ambulance Victoria. I am now a Tour Guide in the Northern Territory. I started the "Talkfest Forum for Australasian Paramedics" in 2009. It now has well over 1,000 members from all over Australia. This is fine for informal comments about all thing work related, but did nothing to inform the public about paramedics' concerns. This "FAIR-GO BLOG" was started to allow paramedics and others, to inform the general public about things that they are either concerned about or feel that the public would benefit from knowing. Paramedics in all States, have said that they cannot safely make any public comments in regard to their work or their management, for fear of being reprimanded or even dismissed. This is therefore a way for them to communicate with, and receive feedback from, the public. There is a very good reason why Paramedics have been independently voted as the most trusted profession in Australia, while politicians have constantly been near the bottom of that same list. Who should you listen to when it comes to your well being? Did I hear you say... "politicians"? While I administer this blog, I do not advocate, indorse or necessarily agree with any of the opinions and/or comments posted on the blog. Posts and comments are the sole responsibility of those persons making them. John
