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


This is appalling. Who's idea is this? Who is the undividual who thought this up? Who designed the form?? What are their qualifications?? Why has the power of life and death over every seriously ill individual in the country seemingly been handed without a murmur to people who's basic job is to transport people to hospital? Why does the opinion of some nameless form designer in an ambulance service trump the wishes of the GPs, Hospital Drs and nurses they service? fill in a form before calling 999-- WTF??? I'm gobsmacked.
