Faster service by ambulance patrol

The Barbados Ambulance service is now responding to calls at a faster rate.

Director of Support Services at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) Louise Bobb told a press conference yesterday that since obtaining four new ambulances from Government in February, the service has been able to maintain a complement of eight ambulances.

She said the service responded to approximately 35 to 40 calls per day and 90 per cent of the time that happened within 15 minutes of receiving a call.

Bobb said a corporate review of the hospital showed that the service was now working very well with minimal complaints. However, a plan was being designed to increase the number of ambulances.

“Our plan was always to have a procurement programme for ambulances and we are hoping that we will be able to do that each financial year so that we will have a full complement that would allow for downtime and servicing, so 12 is the goal, “ she explained.
