Ambulance bosses launch new tool to reduce unnecessary care home call outs - North West Evening Mail
Staff at homes for the elderly are being trained by the North West Ambulance Service in how to determine themselves whether a patient requires an ambulance, a GP or urgent care service.
Community paramedic Mark Wenman said: "Patients in care and residential homes are often much more comfortable being treated where they are without the need to be admitted into hospital and wherever possible we will do everything we can to make sure this is possible."
