Paramedic accused over shopping trip

A PARAMEDIC is being investigated over claims an ambulance on call to collect 
a patient was diverted in order to go on a shopping trip.

The medic is alleged to 
have gone shopping at a PC World store in Dunfermline, Fife, when the ambulance was responding to a call from a doctor to take someone to hospital.

A fellow ambulance worker who learned of the incident is understood to have raised the complaint.

A Scottish Ambulance Spokesman said: “We are investigating an alleged 
instance of unauthorised diversion during a response to an non-emergency call.”

He said the matter would 
be dealt with internally following the end of the investigation into the alleged diversion.
