Question on Notice
Ms Ryan to ask the Minister for Public Transport — Why has the Government reduced funding and working hours of private medical practitioners at Flinders Street Station.
- Answered: 15 August 2022
The metropolitan rail operator Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) has a contract with the Colmed Group to supply experienced and qualified First Aid personnel, to attend ill or injured passengers on the metropolitan rail network. Colmed staff are located at key stations across the network.
There is no additional cost to the Government for these services. The cost is included as part of the Franchise Sum paid to MTM monthly.
MTM has not reduced the service hours of the medics operating from Flinders Street station. During the lowest patronage levels experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, the experienced medics located at Flinders Street station operated as normal.
