Thanks from am­bu­lance

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Notice To Benefits Claimants -

The am­bu­lance ser­vice has thanked the pub­lic for their sup­port dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod.

Be­tween 10pm on New Year’s Eve and 4am on New Year’s Day, the South East Coast Am­bu­lance Ser­vice (SECAmb) re­ceived 1,160 calls across Kent, Sus­sex and Sur­rey, an av­er­age of more than three calls a minute.

This was a slight de­crease on last year when the trust ex­pe­ri­enced one of its busiest nights on record .

SECAmb Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Paul Sut­ton said: “Christ­mas and New Year is al­ways a very busy time of year for the am­bu­lance ser­vice. With the ad­di­tional chal­lenge of the floods this year all our staff had to work ex­tremely hard to meet the de­mand placed upon them. I’m ex­tremely proud of how ev­ery­one rose to the chal­lenge.”
