Watch out for matron

Thursday, 03 January, 2013

On December 15 2012, NHS North West's virtual character, Matron observed the party habits of Manchester, when she hitched a ride with the North West Ambulance Service.

Traditionally one of the busiest party nights of the year, Matron saw for herself the types of incidents the ambulance service deals with when thousands descend upon the city centre to celebrate the festive season and tweeted her observations and matronly advice throughout the night.

Matron joined Paramedic Paul O'Neill on his city centre based rapid response vehicle from 8pm and accompanied him as he was sent to incidents throughout the night.
