 :-o Ambicare: Ballarat jobs lost
23 Feb, 2011 09:27 AM
BALLARAT workers at patient transfer company Ambicare are reeling after losing their jobs this week.
On Monday, employees at the Ballarat branch of the Horsham-based company were told the business had gone into liquidation.

Patient transport officer Peter Butcher said workers at the company were devastated.

Mr Butcher said he received a phone call on Sunday followed by a text message that evening saying the company would hold a meeting at 11am on Monday.

When we arrived at the shed, the liquidators were there and said the company was finished,he

said. We were devastated. We all have mortgages and bills to pay.

The company provides non-emergency patient transfers. Ambicare operated out of sites in Ballarat, Horsham, Bendigo, Hamilton and Mildura.

Earlier this week the company appointed Pitcher Partners to manage the liquidation process.

Pitcher Partners partner David Vasudevan said up to 50 staff across Victoria would be affected by Ambicare's closure.

“The decision was made by the director to call us in,” he said. “In this particular instance unfortunately there’s no other option but to stop trading.”

“We’re looking at all angles but clearly a drop in revenue was a major impact in the company’s demise.”

He said it could be up to eight weeks before employees receive their entitlements.

I have always stood by the use of Paramedic was a fully qualified ambo at Advanced Life Support level and above. Is it wise still assume this is still the case? Please comment!
