She said it was spraying out of his distended belly button. Phoned for an ambulance ..... 3 hours .... they advised getting a taxi and getting reimbursed 3 hours wait .... 1 hour ago, Tinfoil Hat said: When his wife rung the emergency services they tried to send him to a hospital miles away and he objected because there's one about a mile from where he lives. They then agreed he could go there but must wait for an ambulance. 40 minutes later it still had not arrived, so his wife drove him there. They could see ambulances just parked up empty and staff unoccupied. This is the reverse of a story I shared here a few weeks ago, where a man drove his injured mother to a hospital in Wolverhampton, only to be told that in order to get assistance getting her out of the car and into the hospital, he should call an ambulance. The call handler was a bit bemused, and so were the paramedics who arrived. Nothing makes any sense anymore with the NHS, because it is not meant to.
