Lauren Jeal 1st Nov, 2016

AMBULANCE staff have responded to more calls over Halloween weekend than any other this year so far.
The combination of the Hallowween, bonfire and Diwali celebrations saw nearly 600 calls for an ambulance across Worcestershire.
Mark Gough, Assistant Chief Ambulance Officer, said: “The combination of a payday weekend, the clock change and various celebrations meant we had put additional resources on to cope with the expected extra demand. Despite the number of 999 calls, staff worked incredibly hard to ensure patients continued to receive excellent care.”
