GPs to wait 40 minutes for ambulances for critically ill patients under new trial


Telephone consultation, Patient's relative: I think Maureen's had a stroke, I saw that advert about FAST. The left side of her face is melted like an ice cream in an oven. Can you come and see her? Doc: Call an ambulance immediately and don't let her eat anything. Patient's relative: I did but the ambulance downgraded the call until you come round and fill in the form to make sure she's had a stroke and not just a UTI or just being a bit dramatic. Doc:... Facepalm
