Although it should be quite obvious for emergency medical services, emergency care services and other emergency services to be freely available at any time of the day and night, this is sadly not always the case. Shockingly, in many circumstances there have been people in urgent need of medical help who have been unable to even get a taxi during the night when there were no ambulances available because most taxi companies and taxi drivers will finish their shift at around eleven o’clock in the night. Although admittedly there are many different ambulance services available, most of these private ambulance services hire employees who do not take their job too seriously and may not always be on call and answer the phone or respond immediately to a call made during the late hours of the night or early hours of the morning.
The need for private and government services to work together
Doctors in Mermaid Waters, emergency ambulance services and emergency medical services should always work together instead of as competing businesses. Sadly, in most cases of private emergency medical services, these private businesses will work individually and not work together due to the face that they consider the other services and companies to be competition. Sadly, these people have not been given the right amount of training to understand the importance of their job and therefore do not tend to think about it too much. For example, if there was a case when one company did not have an emergency ambulance on hand during an emergency, it would be so very useful and efficient if he were to call up another emergency ambulance service and let them know of the caller’s emergency. It is important to remember that the caller is much stressed and may not be able to complete these tasks by himself and therefore it would be very useful for you to call the other company on his behalf.
In the case of government services it is highly unlikely that the services will employ the services of a private emergency medical service or an after-hours doctor and nor will a private practice work with the government service unless pushed to do so. It is vital that the lay citizens of any country take this issue up and ask your local government to combine these services at no charge.
It would be useful for the government to also have a knowledge bank in case anyone who has not managed to keep contacts with them is able to reach a doctor at any given time.
