AV recently announced the implementation of an automated notification system for when AV crews are attending the known premises of a Covid positive patient. In announcing the long overdue implementation of a system AEAV asked for 18 months ago, AV indicated that they would no longer be asking screening questions that were put in place to identify premises where people were required to isolate.
The AEAV wrote to AV on 13 September 2021 and protested that the Covid screening questioning should not be scrapped. On 23 September 2021 AV responded and agreed to continue with the questioning. A win for paramedics and patient transport officers. Read our letter HERE and AV’s response HERE.
