Some Emergency Service

Workers have to suffer all sorts of indignities. As if a life of exploitation and poverty was not enough a poor 89 year-old woman had to suffer this further calamity. 'A great-grandmother was left in agony on a rain-soaked pavement after suffering a fall because emergency services were too busy to come to her aid. Despite being called only moments after Evelyn Davey slipped and broke her arm, paramedics failed to get to the pensioner for two hours.'  (Daily Mail, 11 November) This incident is not unique the same North East Ambulance Service failed to aid a 15 year-old boy with a broken leg for two hours the previous week . Under funded, under staffed that is the NHS for you. RD
