Ambulance delays are out of control
The ambulance waiting time crisis has reached unprecedented levels, with people waiting hours for emergency medical services to arrive.
This is an unacceptable situation that must be addressed urgently.
The reasons behind this crisis are complex and multifaceted, but it is clear that the problems are of the government's own making, primarily:
- A shortage of medical staff after years of unfunded training, poor working conditions and terrible pay
- Increased demand for ambulance services with an ageing population and insufficient NHS funding to support them
If this government won't wake up to the ambulance crisis, we must demand a voting system that gives us one which will.
Without a change, there could and will be many more preventable deaths. Sandra can't wait.
