I have been using the ambulance service for some time to collect me from home and take me to the Gloucester Royal for dialysis treatment.
The service is generally good, but yesterday I was kept waiting for 1 ¾ hours after my dialysis had finished. Lots of other patients and the nurses kept coming out and saying ‘Are you still here! ’. The ambulance crew said they were waiting for other Stroud residents.
I prefer the Dursley ambulance as I’m not kept waiting for so long, the Stroud service is always the one that is a bit disappointing.
