Tameside A&E Nurse and East Lancashire Freemason John Gilmour has made a spectacular effort in the Covid-19 crisis by purchasing an ambulance in order to assist positively diagnosed yet stranded patients get home in order to safely isolate
Working on the front line at Tameside Hospital in the fight against the virus, John, who is a member of King Edward Lodge No. 3329, noticed that the overstretched ambulance service couldn’t return patients home, and taxi services are reluctant to transport those who have been positively diagnosed.
Repairs and the costs of running the vehicle are being undertaken by local members of the community in the forms of services from local tradespeople and donations. Thus far John has raised over £3,000.
The ambulance hopes to be repaired very soon and will provide a vital service to those in need.
