Woman's 'hour long wait' for ambulance after being run over

Basildon Recorder: Woman's 'hour long wait' for ambulance after being run over Woman's 'hour long wait' for ambulance after being run over

A WOMAN, who was hit by a car, was left lying in the in the pouring rain for an hour waiting for paramedics, despite being just yards from the ambulance station.

The woman's partner, Matthew Hawkins, said despite being less than 100 metres from the ambulance station on Great Oaks, Basildon, 33-year-old Julene’ Pienaar lay injured and shivering waiting to be taken to Basildon Hospital.

As Miss Pienarr crossed Great Oaks on Sunday September 23 she was struck by a vehicle, flying on to its bonnet before landing on the ground.

Passers-by and motorists rushed to help and immediately dialled 999, following the crash which happened just before 2pm.

A paramedic in a rapid response car arrived within 15-minutes.

But, because the paramedic was travelling in a car they had no spinal board or neck brace, leaving members of the public forced to help by holding a shivering Miss Pienaar’s neck.

Her partner claimed no ambulance arrived for an hour.

However the East of England Ambulance Service maintain the ambulance arrived at the scene within 40 minutes, arriving at 2.40pm after the initial 2pm call.

It has nothing to do with the tories how the money any public service recieves is spent.
There is a lot of inefficiencies and wastage in public services and it did not help when previous governments threw money at certain services in the hope it will make that service better. In reality this extra money caused these public services to become frivolous and careless with money. When the money coming in is cut the bosses of these public services start to run around like headless chickens and start cutting frontline services, blaming the government, so that they can hide the inefficiencies of past spending. These bosses have no skills in efficient spending.and it makes you wonder what the real reason for the Ambulance boss taking "early retirement" is.

Unfortunately many good samaritans who have helped people with similar injuries to hospital, have ended up seeing the roof cut off their cars in Hospital car parks as Drs don't want to risk moving patients further with neck and back injuries. Leave it to the Ambulance service, or what's left of it!

if she was only a hundred metres from the ambulance station someone could have walked (or even ran) down there to get one, surely?

I hope the poor woman recovers from her accident/ordeal soon.

Several reasons likely-

People calling ambulances when they don't need one = less on the road for people who do. Too many people think they are big yellow taxis.

Bosses in healthcare don't listen to the ground troops and there are too many middle management managers there to ensure all the box ticking occurs

Tory government health cuts. Yes wake up people the NHS is being privatised by the back door. Reduced funding to the services and private companies allowed to bid for certain areas where they will cream off the easy profit making stuff leaving the difficult /multiple problem patient behind. I was raised a Tory but work in the NHS- this is real, this is happening.

Well said on your description, nice word.

Do not fear, I think the lad twot is a wind up though. Been with us for a while under a variety of names, usually celebrating irresponsible driving.

Sort of troll behind the wheel as it were although I strongly suspect he is a no-mates social inadequate with no driving licence, or job, or partner, living with his parents. This is what happens when you give a computer to an idiot.

I sincerely hope the woman is going to make a full recovery. This delay is completely unacceptable and needs to be investigated fully.

It is a common occurance though, the few remaining ambulances are travelling all over essex to deal with calls, add the fact that our population is exploding, as great a job as they do, you just cant rely on ambulances anymore, they havent got the staff or equipment and its going to take mass-deaths until the government will aknowlege it

Finally someone else has realised! However I think you missed out uneducated as most of the time he clearly doesn't have a clue what he's talking about!

As for the story itself, unfortunately this is the state our "Great" Britain has got itself into, not enough vehicles for the emergency services we pay so much for via extortionate taxes etc and people to scared to help for fear of the "where there's blame, there's a claim" society we now experience. I know from experience that after completing a First Aid Course which cost hundreds of pounds, I was basically told that if I was ever in a situation that required first aid assistance, to not touch them and just call an ambulance in case I was sued!

Because if there were neck or spinal injuries moving somebody could be the difference between being quadraplegic or not even dying if spinal cord was severed when moving somebody So anybody doing that wouldnt be brave they would be dangerous

I sincerely hope the woman is going to make a full recovery. This delay is completely unacceptable and needs to be investigated fully.
Mate dont give me that crap, I just come on these sites to pI55 people off like you. Im a much better driver then you, I have a job, do have a gf, and you got one right I do still live at home with my parents! Congratualtions on that you old bastar5d. I bet your a sad lonely man that cant even provide for himself, your probably sitting in a pool of pi55 now.
Well the main thing here is this woman who was injured having been hit by a car, the sort of thing that would be the inevitable end result in the type of driving you so often praise.

So my thoughts are the same, I wish the woman a full recovery.

As for you, thanks for confirming you were all those previous names. How many bans from this site is that so far then?

Finally someone else has realised! However I think you missed out uneducated as most of the time he clearly doesn't have a clue what he's talking about!

As for the story itself, unfortunately this is the state our "Great" Britain has got itself into, not enough vehicles for the emergency services we pay so much for via extortionate taxes etc and people to scared to help for fear of the "where there's blame, there's a claim" society we now experience. I know from experience that after completing a First Aid Course which cost hundreds of pounds, I was basically told that if I was ever in a situation that required first aid assistance, to not touch them and just call an ambulance in case I was sued!
Whoever delivered your first aid training and told you that is a fool and does not understand the meaning of first aid. Please ignore it. There are stated cases in law that if a person makes a genuine attempt to help somebody and providing of course they don't do anything totally ridiculous then they cannot be sued.

Having worked in one of the emergency services for thirty five years of my working life and am currently with the Ambulance Service I can tell you that the ambulance service is the most poorly equipped, underfunded, understaffed and busiest (ratio amount of calls received compared to amount of staff able to respond) of all three services. The staff are working flat out, driving hundreds of miles across the region every shift with a bare thirty minutes break during each twelve hour shift (to the minute ... exactly thirty minutes stand down time) Each vehicle responds to around twelve calls each shift ranging from the truly awful life threatening conditions to the total plonkas with hangovers, colds or cut fingers. Staff that I work with do this every day, they are treated appallingly by the top management who demand more and more yet give less and less and yet these same staff still volunteer to go to training days and learn extra skills in their own time and at their own expense because the trust do not allow them to do it during work time. Yes, an organisation that asks staff to complete training that enables them to do their job better in their own time. Until the service is properly funded so that it has sufficient properly trained motivated staff with well maintained modern equipment working for an efficient and considerate employer then things will only get worse.

Well said on your description, nice word.

Do not fear, I think the lad twot is a wind up though. Been with us for a while under a variety of names, usually celebrating irresponsible driving.

Sort of troll behind the wheel as it were although I strongly suspect he is a no-mates social inadequate with no driving licence, or job, or partner, living with his parents. This is what happens when you give a computer to an idiot.
