AMBULANCES were turned away by a major Scots hospital today amid rising Covid cases and injuries in the icy weather. Several emergency calls were redirected from the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital as it struggled to cope with a sudden influx of patients this morning.
Were they redirected from the incident location or did they turn up at the QEUH A&E department to be ‘turned away?’ They have radios. Does anyone really think they turned up to be turned away?
How many calls were redirected? Ten. What percentage of calls is that? Too small to report?
What is the source of the story? We are not told. Was it a GMB janny who knows Monica Lennon? Yes, she tweeted and at the bottom of the story an NHS GGC spokesman said :
So, no story at all really just a clickbait scare that might put the elderly off calling for an ambulance. Well done.
