    Abstract

    This study surveyed general practitioners, registered nurses, ambulance officers and members of the public to determine satisfaction levels in rural ambulance services in the Australian State of Victoria. It was part of a larger study developing rural models of ambulance service delivery. Respondents were asked to complete a survey about their satisfaction with their local ambulance services and their confidence in local emergency medical systems. Satisfaction levels were very high and associated with direct experience as patients or as immediate family members of patients. Focusing on specific elements of the ambulance system in future satisfaction surveys may improve the capacity of managers and policy makers to develop appropriate policies and implement changes in system design and professional practice.
