The South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) is experiencing a significant surge in demand today, leading to longer than usual response times for emergency services. This high pressure on their resources is impacting the efficiency of their response capabilities.
SECAmb is urging the public to assist in managing this situation effectively. They have requested that people help keep emergency lines free for genuine emergencies. The public is advised to only call back in two specific situations: if the condition of a patient worsens significantly, or if they find that they no longer require emergency assistance.
