Today a colleague saw a very elderly gentleman with a zimmer frame fall over backwards. An ambulance was called at 1.40pm. Concerned for his welfare she followed up and found that he was still lying on the pavement at 5.20pm.
I am finding this very hard to stomach as you would not expect the ambulance service to be overwhelmed at that time on a Thursday afternoon. If it had been late on a boozy Saturday or Friday night it might have been more understandable. Was there not one single paramedic car that could have gone to him? Suppose it had been midwinter, pouring with rain or 30° plus temperatures. I can't stop thinking about it.
