Listen: Ambulances Took Over An Hour To Respond To Life-Threatening Incidents Twice This Year.

: 13/06/2019 - 10:34

On two occasions this year, it took an ambulance over an hour to arrive at a life-threatening emergency.

New figures also show that response-time targets aren't being met in up to 50 per cent of such cases across the country.

In Kildare, a response time of over an hour was recorded.
