Ambulance Delays

A whistleblower says people are at risk through delays in the East of England ambulance service. Police claim they are plugging the gap, a job they're not trained or equipped to do

Delays in ambulance response times in the East of England are putting lives at risk, says a whistle blower paramedic. He's been despatched in a car in response to some 999 calls - but when he's called for back-up, it's taken a long time for a fully-crewed ambulance to arrive. He's attended two patients that have died and he suspects the delays were partly to blame.
