On Cork’s 96FM Opinion Line with PJ Coogan.
Corkwoman Elaine Daly (53) had a painfull fall outside her home in Larchfield, Cork City yesterday morning in freezing temperatures.
Her neighbour Vickie Thompson phoned an ambulance at 8.15am. When they called an hour later to ask why the ambulance had not come, the dispatcher responded that one was on the way and would take a further 105 minutes.
A Cork ambulance team, which came on duty at 10am and was reassigned the call, arrived at roughly 10.40 and informed them that the original ambulance dispatched was on its way ….from Dublin.
