Ambulances and the New Children’s Hospital

Mr Robert Morton, head of the National Ambulance Service met the Dolphin group 2nd May 2012.   In minutes ,obtained by NCHA under the Freedom of information Act , he informs the Group ” Exemptions provided to ambulances do not increase speed in high-traffic areas. An important factor for the National Ambulance Service in relation to location [of the NPH ] is good access to a major thoroughfare eg M50 or other”.

it’ a no-brainer -Connolly hospital on a slip road off the M50 with its hard shoulder emergency lane, wins hands down over St. James’s.
