Editorial: Uncompromising Sanderson shows her mettle

When she took over as Health Minister from Roger Cook in December, Amber-Jade Sanderson stepped into the hardest job in the McGowan Government.

The ambulance service was teetering on the brink, emergency departments overflowing and hospitals were struggling to cope, even without community spread of COVID-19. Many saw her appointment to the health portfolio, just two months before the doors to the State were thrown open to Omicron, as a poisoned chalice.

But the rookie minister is proving herself a tough and uncompromising performer.

Eight months into her tenure, Ms Sanderson is beginning to make her mark.

On Wednesday, The West Australian revealed Ms Sanderson had put an ultimatum to St John WA — make sweeping changes to the way it operates or lose the contract to operate the State’s ambulance services.
