Ambulance Injuries: mapped!
Following Nick Stylianou‘s revelations last week that there was an average of 100 injuries a month to ambulance workers across London, we’ve mapped the data to each ambulance station.
The largest number of injuries was recorded at Whipps Cross ambulance station, with 256. The next highest, however, was Romford with 233 injuries since 2008.
Romford’s ambulance station is near Queen’s Hospital, and is less than three miles away from St George’s Hospital, Hornchurch. Hornchurch, however, had only 37 recorded injuries.
Another interesting comparison is in Enfield, North London: Chase Farm Hospital ambulance station has recorded 105 injuries to staff, but 2.4 miles away at the Ponders End station, there have been just 20 injuries over three years.
