As you prob all know during my last splat the other week we phoned for an ambulance ( rare for me as mum usually takes me!) but after 25mins and one not turning up my dad phoned back to be told none were available to which they took me themselves. Much to the annpyance of medics who proceeded to tell my parents in futiure to call amb!! you can imagine my dads reply!!
Discussed on her before probs with A and E has anyone had probs with ambulances?
I emailed their PALS officer and it was looked into.
Outcome: origional call put me as serious but not life threatening!! as i was consious and breathing!! mum told them i was britle, lips blue and satslow on max o2?
When called again to update as said was deteriorating i would have been upgraded to life threatening but still couldnt say when i would have got an ambulance?
Forgive me but i thought all asthma attacks were potentionally life threatening? seems not same catagory as abroken leg in pain? hows that fair?
WAs told that all callers are told to ring back if conditon deteriorates mum says she wasnt told?
So be aware next time call 999.
