You would think that if you had an accident or were involved in a car crash and you dialled 999, an ambulance would come to your assistance as quickly as possible.

I was very shocked to see that it has been reported in the news just the other day that an ambulance technician chose not to respond to a 999 call as he was on a break.  The call came from a woman who had reported a heart attack 800 yards from his depot in Moray.

As the technician was on a break at the time of the incident the call was answered by a crew based around 21 minutes away in Granton-on-Spey.  Despite an air ambulance also being scrambled, sadly the 33 year old heard attack victim died.

A spokesman for the Scottish Ambulance Service has asked the Health Professions Council to consider the technician’s decision making and has suspended him whilst this investigation takes place.

Hopefully this investigation will mean that something like this does not happen again.
