• Its an old post but this is relevant. It seems that a poor lady collapsed in the High Street today and needed an ambulance HOWEVER this is what happened.

    ( Cut & Pasted from the ECHO ) A spokesman for East of England Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 1.10pm to High Street, Rayleigh, on Monday, to a report of a woman who had collapsed and was unconscious.

    “Two rapid response vehicles, two ambulance crews, an ambulance officer and air ambulance from Essex and Herts Air Ambulance were dispatched.

    Hope the women is OK but what an over reaction when the NHS is at full stretch, somebody needs to look into this.
