What if my ambulance doesn't arrive?

Question:
What if my ambulance doesn't arrive?
Answer:

If your ambulance has not arrived in the time you expected, please telephone the hospital (the number is on your appointment card) to check if an ambulance has been booked for you.

If the ambulance has not been arranged then let them know your situation and that you need an ambulance to attend the appointment. Wherever possible we will do our best to pick you up.
