Inside EOC

A unique insight into emergency care on one of the ambulance service’s challenging days of the year is being played out on social media users for a third year running.

To coincide with what emergency services dub Black Friday tomorrow (15th December), the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) will run a Winter Twitterthon, highlighting the work of the service and the type and sheer volume of calls received this time of year. 

The day is traditionally known as Black Friday because of its connection with Christmas parties and nights out.  Last year, the service took 3,276 calls.

The Twitterthon can be followed by using #24HoursinEoE, and starts at 6.30am.

All of the information about Winter health and demand on the ambulance service can be found following #winterwise, #staywellthiswinter and at
