We told you earlier this month that the London tubes were to get roaming paramedics to try and cut down on tube delays and today reports are saying the sceme has been a success.
The new scheme allows tube paramedics to using vehicles with flashing blue lights to travelling to tube stations where medical assistance is needed and according to London Underground they have almost halved critical incident response time in the first month of operation.
As you’ll know if you’ve ever travelled on the tube before someone falling ill used to mean a lengthy wait for tube staff with only basic first-aid training to help while paramedics made their way to the scene having a knock on effect on the rest of the tube line. Under the new scheme specially trained paramedics can help those who are ill much quicker.
