Ambulance Service: 'If you don't stop shouting we won't send an ambulance'

Desperate parents ring 999 three times as they wait for emergency service.

An angry mother has described how she was warned by 999 operators that an ambulance would not be sent to help her collapsed daughter unless they stopped shouting.

Paula Rudd had to wait an hour and fifteen minutes for an ambulance for her daughter Georgina who had suffered a brain haemorrhage.

Mrs Rudd, who is medically trained, said her daughter had a grey complexion and complained of feeling sick, having a pounding head and neck pain.

She said: 'Anyone who has a daughter who is unconscious for nearly an hour would be hysterical.'

My comment: Wonder how the operator expected the parents to behave having waited so long for an ambulance? Not a good advert for the ambulance service is it?
