Outpatients Appointments Back To Normal Tomorrow
Inquest Into Death Of Cambridgeshire Man Dumped By Paramedics
An inquest into the death of a man whose body was dumped beside rubbish bins by paramedics will be held today.
Crews from the East of England Ambulance Service were called out after James Harrison, 32, collapsed and died near his home in Littleport, in Cambridgeshire.
The trust has since admitted they left him lying on the floor of an ambulance station so that they could finish the shift on time.
The case prompted Peter Bone, Conservative MP for Wellingborough, to call for a investigation, describing the incident as ``appalling''.
Chief executive Anthony Marsh said the trust is ``working with the family'' to find out what happened.
``We are very sorry for what happened and have launched a thorough investigation,'' he added.
The allegations came to light after a whistle-blower contacted the press claiming Mr Harrison's body was left on the floor at Ely Ambulance Station, in Nutholt Lane, for an hour instead of being taken to a mortuary at Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge.
Mr Harrison was found dead at his home in of Hardwicke Close, Littleport, on September 24.
The inquest will take place at the South Fens Business Centre, Chatteris, today.
