My 87 year old mother received a call from patient transport cancelling her transport for the following morning, this was due to lack of resources. She requires a two man ambulance due to her mobility and had been seen at Wishaw General who requested she see her Consultant at The Golden Jubilee due to complications. Who makes the clinical judgement on who should be cancelled due to lack of resources?
