Push bike paramedics ease London GPs’ winter workload

Paramedics from the London Ambulance Service (LAS) have been making house calls instead of GPs in south London.

The push bike paramedics are part of a trial to provide care to people who are housebound or find it difficult to get to a doctor’s surgery.

Medics have been doing their rounds on bicycles, making it easier to get between patients.

If the trial is successful they may become a more common sight around London in the future.
