Last week West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper drew attention to the unacceptably slow service that the North West Ambulance Service are providing, after an 88 year old man was left in the road waiting for an ambulance for almost three hours after falling, injuring his head.
It is not just the emergency transport side of NWAS that are slow however, as Rosie has now been told that she will have to wait up to 40 working days for a response to a letter she wrote to the NWAS CEO on 29 October.
Rosie Cooper MP commented:
“It looks like I am waiting as long for a response as I am for an ambulance in West Lancashire!
“This letter shared details of another disgracefully long wait for an ambulance, this time an 87 year old woman who waited six hours! And now NWAS want to take 2 months to explain what went wrong.
“Constituents need timely responses to their complaints, but more importantly they need timely ambulances in the first place!”
