Letter: It's all too easy to call an ambulance
3:30pm Monday 11th June 2012 in Opinion
Ambulances are delayed because there are numerous jobs they are attending that don't need an emergency ambulance.
It costs approx £700 per call that is taken to hospital. People need to start asking themselves if I was made to pay that would I still ring an ambulance or would I make my own way there?
Once people start doing that the crews will be available for real emergencies. It is too easy to ring an ambulance for non-emergencies.
