Air ambulance need highlighted
THE news that an air ambulance has had to be borrowed from the Scottish Ambulance Service for the period of the G8 seems to underline that such rapid emergency care is cost-effective for the Scots, cost-effective for the G8, but not warranted for the people of Northern Ireland.
Maybe the mandarins may learn that Transforming Your Care requires improving emergency transport between centres.
This could be one local legacy of the G8.
