New figures have revealed that in the north east of England alone, a total of 48 ambulance crew members have been attacked while trying to assist injured or sick patients in the last year.  It has been described as “baffling” that some people feel aggression towards ambulance staff with their sole purpose being to help those who require medical attention. A further 119 staff were threatened verbally. These figures have revealed a decline from the last two years: where 2012 saw 57 members of staff being assaulted, and 2011 saw…

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
