PARAMEDICS have been praised for how they treat patients.

98.3 per cent of people, who responded to a survery, were satisfied or very satisfied with the treatment they received from the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

The trust is still struggling with response times and has large numbers of vacancies but once they do arrive the medical experts are saving numberous lives across the six counties, including Essex, they serve.

The results show an improvement from previous survey.

Less than one in a hundred claim they were not treated with dignity or respect however almost one in ten were unhappy with how long it took to get medical care.
