Officials from Dublin and the HSE have announced the restructure of the ambulance call out system in Dublin.
The announcement comes after a patient was controversially forced to wait three and a half hours for paramedics to arrive.
The HSE made an announcement regarding the issue in which they say an agreement has now been reached between the HSE and the chief executives of the four Dublin local authorities on radical changes designed to reduce response times to 999 calls. It is understood that the changes will include the National Ambulance Service Emergency Operations Centre in Tallaght taking responsibility for taking calls and dispatching the emergency ambulances of both the N.A.S and Dublin Fire Brigade.
The HSE also say they and the Dublin City Council are devoted to make the changes over the next six months.
