Use 999 "The right way" in Surrey and Hampshire


Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 7:56am 19th April 2019.

Ambulance bosses are urging us to use 999 the right way in Surrey and Hampshire over the Easter break.

More than 8 thousand emergency calls came into South East Coast Ambulance Service last year.

Now we're being urged to only call in a life threatening emergency.

It's partly to cope with increasing pressure on A&E.

Medics are urging patients to consider using their local GP or a pharmacist as an alternative, unless it is a medical emergency.
