I know nothing is ever going to change back now, but doesn't it seem rather silly that someone can be involved in an accident outside a health centre in Clitheroe and yet have to be taken 12 miles for treatment?

I know what you mean. My mother lives in Kent & an elderly woman fell & banged her head on the kerb edge outside a clinic. The doctors & nurses wouldn't come out & help. They said they were not insured to help. It took her 40 min to get herto hospital.
