How do things compare between Hong Kong and the West Midlands? Very favourably.
Two of the top officials from the ambulance service in Hong Kong have been visiting West Midlands Ambulance Service as part of a fact finding mission to the UK.
Shun Kwok-leung is the Deputy Chief Ambulance Officer for the Hong Kong Fire Service (HKFS) and together with Dawn Shui Ching Lee, who is the Superintendent of the Kowloon East Sector, they were given a tour of the new Coventry and Warwick hubs on Thursday last week.
The HKFS has a fleet of around 350 ambulances and deal with almost 2,000 calls a day. The pair were in the UK visiting the Ambulex exhibition and conference at the Ricoh Arena to look at the way ambulance services operate in the UK and to see if there are any ideas they can take back to Hong Kong.
Warwick Area Manager, Martyn Scott, who organised the visit to West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: “It was really interesting to hear more about the way that the ambulance service is run in Hong Kong and exchange ideas.
“Our visitors were very interested to see the seamless approach within the hubs with regard to command structure, resourcing, training, operations and fleet.
“We were able to demonstrate the high quality of cleaning, preparation and staff support that they bring.
“It was a pleasure to meet our visitors and hear about how ambulance services are run in Hong Kong. There was a lot of interest amongst staff at the hubs in a trial they are about to run using an electric, one person use, ambulance stretcher.”
