As stated earlier as things stand the ambulance station based in Knaphill is to close and the staff plus vehicles transferred to Ottershaw.
The body that made this decision, South East Coast Ambulance Service Foundation Trust, has been placed in special measures . The reason for this is that they have been rated inadequate by England’s chief inspector of hospitals.
Amongst the reasons given by the Inspector for the decision included bullying, delayed response times and putting patients at risk. The KRA have also been told that there is a shortage of staff.
Given grave state of affairs it is down to politicians at all levels, we have briefed our MP, to halt this move to close our ambulance station because once it closes it will not reopen.
