Ambulance calls hits new record

22nd June 2007

The number of 999 calls for an ambulance has soared to a new record in England.

Statistics from the NHS Information Centre revealed that about 6.3 million calls were logged in 2006-07, which is a rise of 6.3% on the previous 12 months and almost double that from 10 years ago.

The Ambulance Service Union says the rising number of calls is putting paramedics under increased stress but also point out that while the workload has risen, there has been no significant increase in resources.
