According to Wales' acting chief medical officer Dr. Chris Jones, the abnormal and continuous demand of ambulance and other medical services this summer has drag the NHS under big strain.
The Welsh Ambulance Service and A&E departments across Wales are facing a troublesome phase this season. Approximately 999 calls were received by the NHS this summer and along with this, there was an increased demand for the attendance at A&E also.
Something that was bothering the health department and local government was to know the actual reason behind this happening. Is there actually a higher demand of such services in the area or these are getting misused? And if the former is the case then what is causing such a higher demand?
After carrying out an inquiry, the health officials came to know that people these days are demanding medical assistance for such minor cases that actually are of no worry.
A woman called for an ambulance because she was bitten by a hamster on the finger. A man called out for medical assistance because he wanted someone to rub an ointment on his back.
So in a nut shell, it is basically nuisance from the public that is causing difficulty for the emergency services in Wales. And this needs to be immediately reviewed.
