Vital ambulance services wasted on drunk West Aussies

News Today || Headlines Today

Nearly 6000 West Aussies had to call an ambulance after drinking too much alcohol last year – an average of about 16 per day.

St John WA ambulance service responded to 5914 cases directly linked to alcohol intoxication in 2021.

This shocking figure is up 8 per cent on 2020, and 12 per cent on 2017. It’s also the tip of the iceberg – it doesn’t include cases where an ambulance is called to help someone who has experienced an injury while drunk.
