Paramedic Accused over Shopping Trip

DUNFERMLINE, Scotland -- A paramedic is being investigated over claims an ambulance on call to collect a patient was diverted in order to go on a shopping trip.

The medic is alleged to have gone shopping at a PC World store in Dunfermline, Fife, when the ambulance was responding to a call from a doctor to take someone to hospital.

A fellow ambulance worker who learned of the incident is understood to have raised the complaint.

A Scottish Ambulance Spokesman said: "We are investigating an alleged instance of unauthorised diversion during a response to an non-emergency call."

He said the matter would be dealt with internally following the end of the investigation into the alleged diversion.
