Ambulance and special cases
In a medical emergency, where the need is critical, or life-threatening, patients or their carers should dial 999 for a paramedic-led ambulance response. NHS Choices states that ‘it will generally be obvious if the patient, or someone else, is seriously ill, or injured, and will need emergency care’. A medical professional may also call for an ambulance on your behalf where this is appropriate.For non emergencies, other use of ambulance transport is based on agreed eligibility criteria, according to the medical needs of the patient.
