No way are the British Forces paying attention to that.. they get the job done.So they are not ambulances then surely.
Health minister -
He added that they would not be able to drive ambulances under blue lights, go through red lights or break the speed limit - but would help ambulance staff to get people to A&E more quickly.
Yes pretty muchYour local taxi firm is the new 999 is what it boils down to.
Bloody nanny stateAvoid risky activity during ambulance strikes, says minister https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-64037376
Terrible that mate, well done for what you did. We need change.I Heard a noise as i was going to bed last week (12:30am). i looked out of the window and saw my 90 year old neighbour with dementia lying on the pavement outside my house in her pyjamas and with no shoes on. It was -2 at the time and the street was freezing. i went down and her son had arrived and she was saying she couldn't move and she was cold. we rang 999 because there was blood on the floor. they quoted a 5.5 hour response time.
We ended up moving her and hoping she hadn't broken anything because she would have died if we had left her outside for that long.
something needs to change.
(We got her inside carried on a chair, got her warmed up and the ambulance arrived about 20 minutes after we had got inside. She's OK now.)
I think the recommendation was made last February and based on a much lower inflation rate. It's not independent.Has anyone seen the rationale as to why the “Indepenedent” panel is recommending q pay rise llower than inflation. I haven’t seen this but wondered if there was more information around this?
Just saw this on Twitter
