Greg visits new Make Ready Ambulance Station in Paddock Wood

Greg visited the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust's new Make Ready Centre in Paddock Wood.

All ambulances from the area now start and end their shifts at the centre where they are cleaned, restocked and maintained by specialist staff. This enables ambulance crews to spend more time looking after patients.

Greg said: "It was fascinating to see the way each ambulance is kept in a constantly–ready condition, with disinfected and restocked at the end of each shift. I know that the centralisation of the service in Paddock Wood caused concern, for some, but now that it is operational I hope that it will improve availability and improve times."
