I am writing to express my concern at a recent incident involving the London Ambulance Service.
On the 15th June there was an appalling attack on a pregnant 21 year old woman in Peckham in my constituency. The woman concerned, Ms. Malorie Bantala, is my constituent and the attack resulted in the tragic loss of her unborn child. She remains critically ill in hospital.
I am extremely concerned at reports that no ambulance attended the scene and that ultimately, as I understand, the police took Ms. Bantala to hospital an hour after the initial call to the ambulance service was made.
This was an extremely serious assault on a young woman who was 32 weeks pregnant.
I would be grateful if you would send me a full report that includes answers to the following: Did the ambulance service receive a call? If so, at what time? Was an ambulance dispatched? If so, at what time?
