999 re­sponse times

The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - OPINION -

Con­cerns have been raised about am­bu­lance re­sponse times in Aberdeen­shire towns with some wait­ing twice as long as other com­mu­ni­ties in the north east. Of­fi­cial fig­ures show the av­er­age length of time taken to re­spond to a 999 call from Tur­riff was 18 min­utes, and in the worst cases recorded in the fig­ures more than 30 min­utes to reach pa­tients in the area.
