Everyone at work received an e-mail yesterday letting us know of few recent changes to the structure of the DHHS (Department of Health and Human Services) and new names for three major sections of the Agency.

Of interest to me was:

The Tasmanian Ambulance and Health Transport Service is now known as Ambulance Tasmania.

Very few people knew that the TAS - Tasmanian Ambulance Service was renamed about 18 months ago to the TAHTS - Tasmanian Ambulance and Health Transport Service.

So now it's Ambulance Tasmania.

Here is the organisational chart, if anyone is actually interested.

Til then, be safe.

Sounds like TAS publicity is as good as ASNSW, just lately I keep having to explain that I'm not a St Johnnie, a private contractor or some other strange reality of the public's imagination.
That I am the real Mckoy Ambulance Paramedic run by the Government just like the Police and Fire Brigade.

Again nice to see you back on the air Dude.

Thanks for the comment buddy.

We don't get confused much in Tassie, but the general public have absolutely NO idea of our skill set or education level / training levels.

We are just "ambulance drivers".

All ambulance services need a publicity officer. You see a photo of a RTC in the paper and who's in it, the bloody firies as we've been and gone. Rant Over...

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
