Have your say

THE winter season is the busiest for ambulance services, and in a bid to relive pressure it is urging people to think carefully before dialling 999.

South Central Ambulance Service is asking anyone who is not suffering a life-threatening emergency to seek alternative treatment.

Anyone needing non-emergency treatment can call NHS Direct on 0845 4647.
