A mother claims it took ‘nine hours’ to get an ambulance after her four-year-old son broke his wrist when he fell from a slide.
*reads that again*
Yes, it does indeed say ‘wrist’.
After calling 111 for an ambulance at 8.30pm as her child was screaming in pain, she said it took three hours for a call back and then had to wait until 12.34am to be told to book a taxi – which would cost her £80.
I’d ask why his father didn’t drive him, but then….well, Essex. Innit?
Jayne, who will start training to be a paramedic herself this year…
*sharp intake of breath*
‘It could have been anything. If a builder had fallen from eight-foot they would have sent someone out.’
Yes, because he could have spinal injuries. Your son clearly didn’t. If you do indeed make it to that course, I hope a sense of proportion is the first thing they teach you.
