Ambulances

The handling of the NHS by the conservatives/lib dems has just got messy and a whole lot worse with plans to now introduce longer waiting times for ambulances a move described by the unions as ' the move would cost lives and dismissed the scheme as a ploy to meet targets ahead of the election.'

Ambulances will be despatched immediately only if it is a suspected cardiac arrest or major accident.

For all other calls, including life-threatening cases such as strokes, breathing difficulties and blood clots, operators will get three minutes to assess patients.

Tony Hughes, of the union GMB, which represents ambulance staff, said: “These pilots will only serve to bring worse outcomes for patients.

“The run-up to the general election is clearly a factor so that the Tories can show that ambulance services are meeting their targets. This is so far from the truth.”

If you are concerned by the above then do register and let your feelings be known.
