Welcome surprise for ambulance pair in Pinchbeck
A pair of medical staff had an unexpected, but welcome surprise while treating a patient in Pinchbeck.
Paramedic Julie Wade and Emergency Care Assistant Catherine Whitehouse, both of East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS), were parked outside a resident's house whilst treating a casualty last Sunday, September 9.
But later when they came out with the patient, Julie and Catherine found a £5 note and a hand-written note on their ambulance which said: "You blocked my drive but it doesn't matter because I wasn't going out anyway.
"Enjoy your day (and) buy a coffee."
An EMAS spokesman said: "The crew, both from Bourne Ambulance Station, didn’t have time to get a coffee due to being so busy all shift.
"We usually receive 2,500 calls a day but on September 9, we received 3,068 calls and of these, 622 were from Lincolnshire.
"On the same day, we transported 1,208 patients to hospital.
