The NSW Government has announced a new ambulance station for Cherrybrook, as part of its $1.76 billion boost to frontline emergency care.
In its 2022-23 Budget, the Government has pledged more than 2,000 new ambulance staff and 30 new ambulance stations across the state.
Treasurer and Hornsby MP Matt Kean said the pandemic “has made it clear continued investment in frontline healthcare workers is crucial”.
“We are always thankful for the outstanding commitment, compassion and tireless efforts of our ambulance staff but especially throughout the pandemic,” Mr Kean said.
The new station would hopefully ease pressure on ambulance services at existing stations at nearby Castle Hill and Kellyville, and also provide support to Cherrybrook’s surrounding suburbs, which often call on ambulance services from Hornsby Hospital.
