Headline

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

Comment

Perhaps rather than rushing to condemn, we should question Pulse and Dr Eggitt first to ensure they have their facts straight. The spokesperson says "The timeframe for the arrival of an emergency ambulance to convey the patient to hospital has not changed and remains within 19 minutes" So if that is the case then the headline and story are unhelpful scaremongering. If it is not correct then lets know more and hold them to task. Either way, lets check the facts before rushing in with emotional accusations.
