My husband had to attend the WGH this morning and the ambulance arrived and since he is in a wheelchair had great cheery help from Brian.
Unfortunately on the hour journey to the hospital there was no heater working and it was very cold especially for the ill and elderly travelling.
The ambulance bumped along like an old tractor and the patients said what a rocky road but the driver said it was the new ambulance which was always like this. Two of the passengers felt sick near the end of the journey and my husband who has never in his life been travel sick has to lie down for a spell when he got into the house.
I am sure these ambulances cost the NHS a lot of money but has comfort for the patient been ignored to keep the price down?
