East England Ambulance Service NHS Trust Feedback

  1. Essex Ambulance waiting times

    When the ambulance crew arrived they were lovely and administered morphine along with gas and air and took me to a and e where I had to have an operation on my lower leg with steel plates inserted.
    I have never called 999 before and I am absolutely scared for anyone wanting a ambulance in Essex because of the long wait times. The whole experience has affected me mentally and I am finding it difficult to come to terms with the feeling of abandonment in my hour of need.

  2. 5 hour wait! Something needs to change!

    Fell and tore ligaments in my foot and ankle – severe pain and I couldn’t walk – first time I’ve ever called an ambulance for myself – and I was told it would be a 5 hour wait. I had to crawl to my friends car. Need more ambulances – I’m not knocking the staff – the service is severely under funded.

  3. Outstanding

    I will never forget having to call an ambulance when my grandad collapsed. It was a really awful experience and I was so impressed with the responder who came on her own and provided such great support and reassurance. My grandad was very unwell with dementia at the time and we felt that the responder had a good awareness of his condition and how to communicate with him and us about what was happening.
