The NSW Government is investing $150 million over five years to build and upgrade NSW Ambulance facilities across the Sydney metropolitan area.
It's been more than 16 years since a major new ambulance station has been built in Sydney. This program will give NSW Ambulance paramedics the facilities they need to best place them to deliver exceptional emergency patient care into the future.
Superstations will be strategically located to enhance paramedic capacity to deliver emergency medical assistance of the highest standard to patients as quickly as possible.
These new facilities will be supported by a network of smaller, standby stations called Paramedic Response Points from which paramedics can also respond.
