PMQs - "Army volunteers have been filling the gap in the NHS"

"Vicky's 82 yr old mother spent 13 hours on a trolley in a corridor, on top of the 3 hours between calling 999 and arriving in hospital. Vicky says: 'The first responder was a volunteer from Warwickshire Heart Service, whose day job is in the Army, kept mum safe till paramedics arrived. Her mother then suffered a heart attack."
