Just wondering if any of you knowledgable people could shed some light on this for me. Do you know if your GP sends you to hospital by ambulance, does it have a different priority than normally. Each time I have called an ambulance to my house during a severe attack, it has arrived in minutes. We live in the centre of a city.
However, the times I have gone in an ambulance from my GP it seems to have taken much longer. When I went from my GP the last time it took 50 minutes to arrive. After about 30 minutes I heard the doctor say he was going to phone back and upgrade to a ""Blue light"". Does this mean that the initial ambulance request was not an emergency one.
Was wondering whether these calls are downgraded as you are already receiving medical help from docs so would not be as important as someone else having brittle attack on their own somewhere. just wondered how it works as I don't know much about it. Always relieved to see them when they do arrive though!
